Sometimes life feels so difficult and you can’t see a way forward…and other times it just doesn’t feel as good as it could be, and you don’t know how to change it.
Whether you are feeling desperately in need of some help or just a gentle hand to help you along the way, I am here for you.
Together we will explore your thoughts and feelings and work towards finding a bright spark to shine a light into the future.
I work, primarily, in a person-centred way, which allows the client to be in control of the process, helped and guided by me along the way.
I do, however offer a variety of techniques and tailor the sessions to suit your individual needs.
I work with adult clients and have experience in a wide range of situations.
Some key areas include working with people coping with gender issues in all their various forms.
Similarly, I work with those affected by the menopause, not just the individuals immediately experiencing the effects of this, but the wider family and friends who can be impacted.
Whatever your circumstances, I am here to help you and look forward to working with you on your journey.
Our work together will be confidential and I will always treat you with warmth and respect. I am there by your side.
I really understand just how difficult it can be to take the first step, but I will endeavour to make our first meeting as relaxing and comfortable as possible.
Please feel free to contact me by email, phone or text. If you leave a voicemail i will reply as soon as possible.

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.
Accredited register membership

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).
