I am a down to earth, straight talking counsellor with many years of experience working with bereavement, loss and trauma. I offer both short term, goal focussed work as well as longer term therapy, depending on your needs. I also have a keen interest in working with young people age 12+ and have additional training and experience in working with those with an ASD presentation. I can also work with you as a parent if you are struggling with any aspects of parenthood.
I am an integrative counsellor, which means I use a range of theories and approaches which are tailored to you dependent on what your concerns are and the way in which you work most effectively, whether this be through talking or more creative interventions.
I believe wholeheartedly that the therapeutic relationship is the key to counselling and making changes, therefore I offer a free initial phone consultation to allow you an opportunity to see if we might work well together.

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.
