About me

If you're dealing with a previous hurt from the past that you've tried to resolve with no success, then a recovery plan can help to heal and move on.

If you're trying to cope with a current situation that is making you nervous or keeping you up all night then an action plan can help take the next step to resolve it.

If your future direction or goal seems really complicated or stressful, then a life plan can help you become more centred and in control.

When you're choosing a counsellor or life coach it's important to pick someone who has the specific skills and experience you require. Certain forms of therapy are very specialised and should not be attempted by someone who has not had adequate training in those areas. My areas of speciality include working with people who may experience:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bereavement
  • Addictions and family members of those addicted
  • Previous abuse
  • Divorce/end of relationship recovery
  • Current relationship concerns
  • Transition into new life phases (promotion/getting married/having children, etc.)
  • Stress/burnout at work

Coaching for individuals and groups such as organisations, churches, volunteer groups, etc. is also available.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

My office has one small step into it, which should be accessible for all except a large wheelchair.
