I am a fully qualified, friendly, gentle and experienced Person-Centred Counsellor dealing with issues such as anxiety, depression, and relationships. I also have a particular interest in counselling people, or carers of people, with brain injuries such as stroke and brain tumours.
I also specialise in counselling carers of those with Dementia.
Sometimes we don't know why we feel the way we do and talking to a Counsellor can help you to explore these feelings and work out a way through even when things may appear hopeless.
I offer a supportive, non-judgmental and friendly face to face environment using a variety of therapies including Person-Centred, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and sandtrays.
In addition if your condition prevents you from travelling I offer home visits.

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.
