About me

Hi,  I am qualified and experienced counsellor working with both adults and young people (aged 13+).  I offer a professional and confidential service where first and foremost you will feel heard and understood.

I believe good counselling will feel safe, supportive, caring and free from judgements or assumptions. With the right conditions we can explore and reflect on how you are feeling, your current situation or any life events you find yourself carrying.
Through the counselling process you will have the opportunity to develop insight and self awareness empowering you to find the answers or resolutions that are right for you and which will enable you to positively move forward in your life.

I offer both short term and long term counselling working with issues including, but not limited to, stress, anxiety, depression, anger, self harm, self esteem and relationship issues.  I also have good working knowledge of more complex Mental Health issues.

I am a member of the BACP and I work within their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

Along side my private practice I also manage services for Wellingborough Mind which includes supporting a team of counsellors in a busy counselling service.  Prior to this role I worked as a counsellor for a local secondary school where I worked with young people aged 11-18. 
I began my counselling career with Kettering Youth Information as a student counsellor and I progressed to Team Leader, supporting  their team of counsellors and managing their counselling service.

I am based in a village location where there is ample free parking.  It is within easy reach of the A14 and A45 offering easy access from Wellingborough, Oundle, Thrapston, Rushden, Kettering, Corby and surrounding areas.

If you would like to learn more about how we can work together please do contact me.
