About me

I am now offering online and telephone counselling in the wake of the Covid-19 Outbreak

We all have times in our lives when we feel stuck and out of balance.

I can help by offering a non-judgemental space, which puts you at the centre and enables you to work in the best way possible to figure out what you can change in your life to bring it more in to balance.

Whether its a feeling of unfulfillment, depression, anxiety, lack of motivation or difficulties with your relationships with others, talking it through in a way which empowers you to make decisions and changes is often the first step to recovery.

I'm a fully qualified person centred counsellor and a member of the BACP. I can help you by offering an environment where your needs are central and by enabling you to work through your issues at your own pace to identify what will help you to lead a more fulfilling life and promote your wellbeing.

I believe that a holistic approach to self care is necessary for our wellbeing and that counselling is often an integral part of that. I have also received training to support women during menopause and I feel very strongly that its important that women are given a voice and an outlet at this time of change which is often mystified or misunderstood.

I live and work in Evesham and I am passionate about supporting the local community both with my business and voluntary work which I do.

Whether you've had counselling before or you think it’s something that might help you, please feel free to contact me either by email or text/phone call and we can arrange an initial consultation.

During this consultation, which will last around 50 mins I will talk to you about how I work and what I can offer and answer any questions and concerns you have, this time gives us the opportunity to decide whether to work together. If you feel that counselling is the right choice for you we will arrange weekly or fortnightly sessions at a time which suits you.

Member organisations


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.

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.
