About me

During this Covid 19 crisis I am working exclusively online, with Zoom or by telephone. I can help with strategies to manage anxiety and stress at this difficult time. I have over 20 years experience as a Counsellor in primary care (general practice/GP surgeries) and as a Counsellor and Family Worker in a substance misuse agency.

I work with stress, anxiety and depression, OCD, chronic pain, addictions, bereavements, chronic health conditions, PTSD, fear of falling, relationship issues and much more - in general, working with the problems that many of us encounter in our daily lives. I attempt to create an honest working relationship where we can address the issues that impact your life. I attempt to be practical; you want resolution.

I also work with people who are terminally ill using Dignity Therapy techniques. Home visits are available for this.

I have extensive experience of supervision and the development of therapists in training. I am willing to negotiate discounts for those in training for both therapy and supervision.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.
