About me

During the current Covid -19 situation, I am able to offer telephone counselling sessions.

Are you ready to explore new strategies to learn about past or present influences on your life?

As an experienced counsellor, I will offer you the opportunity to talk about past or present difficulties in a confidential, professional and non-judgemental way. This safe space will give you the opportunity to explore personal issues and identify solutions to problems you might have.

Talking about issues that trouble you can bring a sense of relief and a greater understanding of how you can change. Counselling can also help to alleviate symptoms of mental and physical stress and discomfort.

I have more than 15 years experience of working with people of all ages to manage and understand feelings around relationship difficulties, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, anger, trauma and abuse, and issues around self confidence.

I offer a person-centered approach tailored to your particular needs and I will support, nurture and enable you to make your own decisions about your life.

I offer short or longer term support.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.
