About me

Welcome. I am a BACP Accredited and Registered Counsellor with 15 years experience in counselling adults, couples and young people in a variety of settings. 

My counselling approach is Integrative, which is a way of combining two or three counselling theories in order to make sure the counselling meets your individual needs.

How we deal with challenges in life depends on many factors and I believe that working from an Integrative perspective ensures I am working in the best way possible to support you.

When experiencing difficulties in life it can sometimes be helpful to talk to someone outside of your family or friendship groups. It might be something that happened in the past which  continues to cause you difficulties, or something in the present.

As a counsellor I am neutral, non-judgemental and will listen to you and how the situation feels from your perspective.

I offer you the time and space in a calm, confidential and respectful manner.  I work by supporting you to explore your situation, help you to begin understanding things more clearly and, if you choose, to make any decisions in a considered way.

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling together with a Couples Counselling qualification gained from training I undertook with Relate.

Abiding by the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions, I have Clinical Supervision on a monthly basis and regularly update my practice by undertaking professional development activities throughout each year.

I would be happy to answer any further questions you may have without obligation, please do not hesitate to contact me by email or telephone.

Training, qualifications & experience

I gained an Advanced Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling in 2004.

In 2006 I gained a Graduate Certificate in Couple Counselling delivered in collaboration between the University of East London and Relate.

I became an Accredited Member of BACP in 2008.

In 2011 I gained a Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

For 12 years until 2017 I worked as a counsellor at a local Further Education college, counselling students from 16 years coming straight from school, through to adults going back into education later in life.  Alongside this work I also ran a private practice, which is now my main focus.

For several years I was involved with teaching adults on counselling skills courses, delivered counselling skills projects in the community with Nottinghamshire Police, Derbyshire County Council for new childminders and in Young People's community ventures.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

There is a small step into my building, with the counselling room and cloakroom facilities close to the front door with no further steps. Off road parking is available.


I offer sessions throughout the week, Monday to Thursday, and have a number of evening slots available, please contact me to discuss your requirements.
