About me

I have immediate availability for online or telephone counselling and would be honoured to support you in these challenging times.

Are you looking for the answers to those questions you have encountered through life? Where do you go to find clarity about your deepest thoughts? Those that confuse, disorientate, create anxiety. I know how uncomfortable it can be to start counselling. The best counsellors were those that listened to me and empathised without judgement. This is how I will be for you; present attentive and honest, moving forward at your pace. Jointly experiencing your highs and lows without the need to change a thing. Holding the highest regard to the truth of your experience, perspective and how you are in the world.

To get started, simply email me or give me telephone call (this may go to voicemail and I will call you back as soon as I am free). We can agree an initial session where we will talk about what you want to get out of counselling and how counselling may help you. If we feel happy working together we can set up a second session from there.

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
