About me

Welcome, I work from home which is helpful in creating an environment that is warm & comfortable, this enables the client to relax and start the journey of self - awareness/discovery.

Why do I need counselling?

You may come to counselling because of difficult experiences you've been going through, such as a relationship breakdown, bereavement or redundancy. Or you may want help dealing with feelings of sadness, depression, anxiety, anger or low self-worth that does not seem to be connected to any particular event.

How can counselling help me?

f you suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, Depression, Family Issues, Affairs & Betrayals, Separation & Divorce, Bereavement, Addictions, Postnatal Depression, Fertility issues, Stress, Sexual Abuse, Trauma, Low Self Worth & much more  - In a safe and trusting relationship we can explore past and present behaviours, and the effects these have on current relationships.

Counselling is an opportunity to be heard, and really listened to. We all want to be heard. It's gratifying, empowering, and makes us feel valued.

My private and confidential counselling service offers a safe place where thoughts, feelings and behaviours can be explored in a non-judgemental environment.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
