About me

Seeing a Counsellor or Therapist for the first time can feel daunting and you may feel hesitant about sharing personal information with a complete stranger. I fully understand these feelings and I can offer you a safe, quiet and undisturbed space for you to come and talk about any concerns or worries you may have in a confidential, respectful, non-judgemental and empathic environment, while maintaining safe, professional boundaries.

I work from my home and I offer Telephone counselling and also "one to one, local Home visit" counselling sessions, all counselling sessions are for one hour; in your first session you can talk about your reasons for choosing counselling and if counselling is right for you and if we can work together.

Counselling may help with personal relationships, family issues, affairs and betrayals, child related issues, separation and divorce, low mood, feeling sad and depression, anxiety and panic, sexual abuse, physical abuse and domestic violence, illness, trauma and PTSD, loss and bereavement, low self esteem, low self confidence and the many issues which can sometimes affect us as we go through life.

Talking with a Counsellor may help to give you more awareness and understanding and provide help and support and encourage you to develop confidence in your own ability to help yourself, and may provide extra support outside your network of family and friends.

Counselling is a confidential talking therapy and may be able to help you become more aware and understanding of your thoughts, behaviours, feelings, moods and emotions about a particular situation or event in your life, from the past, present or future.

As a Registered Member MBACP; British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy I work to the BACP Ethical Framework.

I will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have about counselling.

Training, qualifications & experience

I can offer Person-Centred Counselling to help you try to understand, accept and come to terms with your thoughts, feelings and emotions about something that may be troubling you from your past, present or future.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), which can try to help you to recognise and become more aware of your thoughts, behaviours, feelings, moods and emotions about a situation or particular event in your life and to help you to change these thoughts, feelings and behaviours. CBT can help you to change how you think and feel and react to a particular situation, event or experience.

And Mindfulness which can help you to manage stress and worry by adopting a Mindful approach. "Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgementally" Jon Kabat-Zinn. Adopting a Mindful approach can help you to manage depression, OCD, addiction, GAD, anxiety and panic attacks, by cultivating compassion, kindness and gratitude within yourself.

After many years of seeing clients, I believe Counselling can provide a unique, beneficial and sometimes necessary additional support for a client at a time of great change, upheaval and uncertainty in their life. Many clients have said to me, that coming to see a counsellor wasn't quite what they had expected and that it had helped them in different ways.

I am currently studying for a Grief and Bereavement Counselling Diploma and I hold an NLP Practitioner Diploma (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), a Life Coaching Diploma, a Diploma in NLP Foundation Skills (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), a Diploma in Mindfulness, a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling, an HND in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and I work from my home.

I attend regular monthly Supervision of my client work and hold Professional Insurance; an enhanced Disclosure Barring Service certificate (formerly CRB) and I continue to build upon my professional knowledge and experience (CPD) Continuing Professional Development Qualifications including; Counselling Skills Advanced; Understanding Domestic Violence and Abuse; Mental Health and Young People; Mindfulness; Psychotherapy; Bereavement Counselling; Meditation;

Member organisations

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.
