About me

Due to the current pandemic situation, I am working online as a temporary measure. If you feel that you need a counsellor over this lockdown period, please get in touch to discuss how I could help you.

There are times when we have all found life difficult or overwhelming. Sometimes we find it hard to climb out of a rut we have got ourselves into. In cloudy times, we cannot even begin to hope that the sun will shine on us again.

Counselling can help; these are just moments in your life that you can work through and become whole again. I believe that everyone, as an individual, is capable of realising their personal abilities, given the right conditions and encouragement.

My hope is that each client embarks on a journey of; self-discovery, understanding, acceptance, independence and empowerment. As a counsellor, I aim to support you on this journey so that you feel heard and understood. I will encourage you to explore your thoughts and feelings, crucially without judgement or consequences. The service I offer is totally confidential and unbiased.

My practice is based in the Aura Business Centre at Mansfield House in Sleaford, the room is peaceful and private. The building is in the heart of the town, next to the Methodist church. Parking can be found close by in the Market Place or Church Lane.

I also have a quiet and secluded room within Newton House in Grantham. This building is in the centre of the town, with a private entrance and parking available close by in Morrison's car park or on street parking on Westgate.

The initial assessment session will include time to discuss the issues that have encouraged you to find help through counselling therapy, and what you expect from the counselling offered. I find that this time usually helps you to feel at ease before the counselling sessions begin in earnest; getting used to each other is a vital part of our counselling relationship.

As a registered member of the BACP, I am committed to working ethically in the best interests of the client and my profession. I am dedicated to ensuring client confidentiality and safety are a priority.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have previous counselling experience with students at a Lincoln school and at the University. I have recently worked as a counsellor for an organisation that supports people of all ages who have been affected by sexual abuse. The service also supported their families/partners, who are so often overlooked, but the effects of the abuse can disturb them too.
As a member of the BACP, I am committed to continually improving my knowledge base by  completing at least 30 hours of CPD each year. This may be through reading, researching and attending courses relevant to my practice.

My qualifications include:

  • BACP Certificate of Proficiency
  • Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills
  • Level 2 Award in Counselling Concepts
