About me

AS an experienced business consultant as well as a counsellor, I understand the challenges business owners are facing right now due to COVID-19. I am offering greatly discounted telephone or Skype rates for business owners who need support during March, April and May 2020.

When times get tough, particularly if you are a business owner or manager, it is often difficult to see a way ahead. I can offer you a safe space to look after your own needs.  Life throws challenges that we are often unprepared for, I can work with you to help you find a way forward, whatever the problem you are experiencing

I work using a variety of counselling approaches depending on your individual needs.

My background is change management and business consultancy, so I have many years experience of work related stress and relationship challenges and this really helps me to help you, whether your difficulties are related to your work or are personal or family related.  If you are a business owner or a manager, I understand and have experience of being in charge with no-one to talk to.

As well as the personal counselling service I offer, I provide counselling within a staff counselling service helping their staff to work through a myriad of challenges and difficulties.

My counselling practice is governed by the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

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.
