About me

Do you have issues, dilemmas or situations that you are struggling to deal with or come to terms with? I use a Person centred approach to counselling and life coaching. I have dealt with a wide range of difficult issues,  having counselled many individuals looking to overcome their problems of the past and present, and build a much more fulfilling life.  I am fully aware from 1st hand experience, of how issues such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, addiction, low self-esteem and confidence and what caused them, can have a debilitating impact on your life. With me you will have a confidential, safe and empathetic space. You will be truly listened to in a genuine and completely non-judgmental way. I will show you that you are the expert on yourself and you have the inherent ability to resolve, address and overcome your problems without being pressured.

Get in touch with me either by phone or email for an informal chat to see if YOU are happy for us to work TOGETHER and after this I can offer you an initial session. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have as I want to make you feel as comfortable as possible . By doing this I hope that you will gain a clearer understanding of what counselling is and hopefully feel more reassured that we can work together. We would usually have weekly sessions however we can adapt according to your needs and we would conduct regular reviews to see how you feel you are progressing.

I offer face to face (following Government Covid-19 guidelines), online, telephone sessions and walking therapy (further details on this will be explained on initial contact). I look forward to hearing from you either by phone or e-mail.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
