MSc, UKCP, UKATA - Counselling, Psychotherapy and Clinical Supervision

About me

I'm Judy and I am a qualified Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor with 28 years of private practice experience.

I am highly experienced in working with individual adults and couples who are experiencing conflict and confusion. Although change is a natural process of life, dealing with loss, changing your mind, your relationships, your patterns, your job, your way of seeing and doing things, is often a challenge and can feel overwhelming.

I am a Certified Transactional Analyst practicing clinical psychotherapy to help my clients overcome various challenges, you can see the full list of areas of counselling I deal with below.

My extensive experience and training gives me the capacity to motivate and enthuse others through modelling a focused approach to learning and demonstrating a positive attitude. My approach is flexible, to suit you as an individual.

I offer confidential sessions in person, by phone and online. If you would like to ask any questions or book a session, please call me on 077991 35323 or send me an email.

Further information

There is so much enjoyment and satisfaction in meeting people from diverse cultures and backgrounds, so much to learn and share – all of which contributes to developing a deeper understanding of our differences and our similarities as human beings. I believe that in our recognition of the value of learning and appreciating what we have to offer each other, lies huge potential for our growth and development both personally and collectively.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.


In person

I offer individual clinical supervision to practitioners at various levels of experience. Supervision may be face to face or online.
