About me

Are you seeing the world from a dark place?

How can counselling help?

At times, we all struggle and need help.

This could be because of major life changes such as Bereavement, Relationship Difficulties, or because of an Historical Trauma that is continuing to cause difficulties in the present.

It can also be difficult to cope with Health-related issues, both physical and psychological, or it can simply be the pressure of dealing with the million daily issues that make up modern life.

Most of the time, we manage to get through the tough times, but sometimes it is hard to see the way forward. Talking to a professional Counsellor can help by sharing your thoughts and emotions with someone who will not judge you; someone who has no agenda other than helping you to achieve your goals.

What I offer

I provide a one-to-one counselling service based on an Integrative Counselling model.

I work collaboratively with you to explore experience of life, and how you came to this difficult place. The goal being to help you gain understanding and insight, and to make choices that allow you to move forward into a more positive and happier future.

Accessing counselling is a big emotional and financial commitment, but it is also a positive investment in yourself and your future.

What to expect in your first session

We will discuss what has brought you to counselling and your goals for the work.

I will explain how I work and what I can offer you.

I am contactable by phone or email, and I am happy to arrange an initial meeting to discuss the best way forward.

Training, qualifications & experience


I am a member of The British Association for Counselling Psychotherapy BACP having graduated in Integrative Counselling from Newman University.


I currently work in both my Private Practice and also in the Voluntary Sector, based in a local Family Centre.

For the last three years I have worked with clients experiencing a wide variety of issues around bereavement, relationships and family difficulties. These could be current or historical but are having a negative impact on their lives.

These difficulties can lead to depression, anxiety and low self-esteem, addictive or obsessive behaviour. I also see clients with a history of abuse and sexual identity issues.

I previously worked in a busy Occupational Therapy Department in the NHS where clients faced a range of work and non-work related concerns.

I work with a wide range of issues, including Abuse, Anxiety, Addictive behaviour, Bereavement, Depression, Family breakdown, Illness, Loss, Low self-esteem, Relationship problems, Sexuality, Stress, and Work related issues.
