About me

There are times in life when we may be struggling with our feelings, thoughts and behaviours or trying to make sense of the situations we may find ourselves in. At such times, it can be helpful to talk things through with an independent, objective and empathic listener.

I am qualified and experienced in the field of counselling, working primarily in independent practice but also in NHS and agency settings. I am a fully accredited counsellor/psychotherapist with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), a qualified and experienced clinical supervisor and counselling tutor. I offer short-term and longer-term face-to-face counselling to focus on what you wish to achieve within a safe and confidential space. Using an empathic, non-judgemental and impartial approach to build a trusting relationship, I can help you explore your areas of concern. I will not tell you what to do but rather help you to work through possible options for change.

I provide counselling for adults and for young people aged 12 and over who are taking the brave step to seek support with their concerns. I'm an integrative counsellor which means I can use a range of approaches, including person-centred counselling, solution-focused therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to suit you and your needs. To ensure ethical practice, I adhere to the ethical guidelines of both the BACP and BABCP. I undertake regular supervision and attend appropriate CPD training. I hold a DBS check certificate and appropriate insurance.

Counselling can help with issues such as:

  • Depression
  • Low mood
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Anger management
  • Low self-esteem
  • Loss
  • Relationship problems
  • Managing life’s transitions and change.

Please feel free to email or call me if you have any questions about counselling or about how I may be of help. I offer a free half-hour initial consultation, without obligation, for us to see how we feel about working together and to assess your therapeutic needs.
