About me

If you are suffering and distressed at the moment, I provide a safe and welcoming space within which I hope you will feel free to express your true thoughts and feelings and with empathy and understanding we can work through any distress you are feeling together.

I specialise in the transition and the accompanying turbulence that comes through change - whether the change is planned, sought out or forced upon you, I know change can be lonely, scary and confusing.

I offer sessions in a cosy cottage, zoom or telephone sessions or walk and talk in natural settings.

I also offer a home visit service to new parents, who find getting out or to appointments difficult, where is it acknowledged that working around babies can be a challenge.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
