About me

Seeing a therapist doesn't mean there's something 'wrong with you'. It means you may...

Feel now is the right time to work through some of your emotions;

Need to work through some traumatic experience;

Want to challenge your negative thinking patterns;

Need some clarity in some areas of your life;

Be ready to learn new techniques which will enable you to cope better;

Feel the time is right to focus on personal growth; or

Feel somebody else may benefit from talking about what's going on for them.

It can often feel scary, nerve wracking and sometimes overwhelming talking to a complete stranger, and that's natural to feel that way. I provide a friendly, non-judgemental & safe environment within a warm, comfortable, and inviting counselling room.

Person-centred counselling is a non-directive client lead talking therapy; sessions provide you with a safe place to talk.

I work with individuals (aged 11 onwards), families and couples, who present with a variety of issues from exam stress, anxiety, depression, peer pressure, bereavement, infidelity, friendship issues, current or historic abuse (sexual or domestic) and family relationships.

I'm situated close to junction 4 of the M18, with off-road parking.

I attend supervision once a month and I'm a registered member of the BACP.

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.
