About me

I am a warm, caring and approachable person, who is good at putting people at ease. I have worked in caring professions for twenty five years, with people of all ages. People often remark that they feel safe and cared for in my counselling space and find it easy to talk.

Counselling is a confidential space in which to talk about your problems and what is worrying you. I will listen carefully to you and without judgement. I may ask you questions to help unpick issues, which gently and without force or pressure I will support you to work through.

I am an integrative therapist, which means that I use different theoretical models and tools to support you in your counselling. This will be different, tailor made - for each person. By tools I mean I may suggest ideas such as journal-ling or drawing for example to help self reflection.

In order to book an appointment please phone or email. I am more than happy to answer any initial questions in this way. We can then book an initial session where we can discuss your requirements in more detail and you can decide whether or not you would like to continue. If you are happy we will work for a further five sessions and review. There is no fixed maximum amount of sessions. Each session lasts for 1 hour.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Person-Centered Counselling and I am an member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

I have experience of counselling people with anxiety, low mood and depression, relationship issues, PTSD, eating disorders and bereavement. (see full list below)

I have a back ground in special needs teaching which additionally supports working people with Asperger’s Syndrome and ASD, special needs, Parkinson’s disease, Parkinson’s dementia and other forms of dementia. I have also worked for the charity MIND.

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.
