About me

I work from an Integrative Psychotherapy approach, developed over thirty years of clinical practice and continued professional development, embracing humanistic and holistic principals. These include believing in the human capacity to change and grow in a positive direction of self-empowerment, given the right environment, and working with the 'whole person' as mind, body and spirit, affecting and being affected by environmental factors.     
I strive to provide an environment in which clients can explore their difficulties and discover their resourcefulness to improve their quality of life, whatever their circumstances. I work with individuals, working one to one and also with couples. Research demonstrates that when clients engage in a therapeutic process, have a willingness and hope that change is possible, that therapy can be effective for a broad range of issues.     

I work creatively to provide a service that fits each unique individual, which is important to me, as is working with individual energy. I have integrated skills including Inner Journey Work, and other gentle and deep approaches to the therapeutic process, where creativity can enhance the healing process.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an accredited MBACP and UKRC Counsellor and Psychotherapist working in private practice and for an NHS "Lets Talk", Primary Care Provider. In my private practice, I work from an annex at my home, created to provide a peaceful, confidential space within a quiet Lincolnshire Village.

I have years of experience of working effectively with a diverse range of difficulties including:-low self esteem, addictions, sexuality, abuse, stress, loss, pain control, relationships, depression, anxiety, spirituality and work related issues. As an Accountant in my former career, I have depth, knowledge and understanding of work and financial pressures. It is now accepted when people are subject to working under too much stress that they are vulnerable to emotional and physical ill health

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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

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.
