About me

Covid -19, Relationships, Anxiety, Depression, Anger issues?

Seeking counselling can sometimes feel difficult, to find someone who you can connect with you and to hear and understand the difficulties that you might be experiencing. However I am glad you have now made that first step.

I am passionate about the work I do as an experienced BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist, I work privately, NHS IAPT service and EAP.

I have 45 years experience working within the health care industry in UK and Australia. Previously I have worked with NHS GP Practices, BCH Police and as a Renal Counsellor at Lister Hospital Stevenage.

I welcome enquiries about counselling. Please do not hesitate to contact me, if you would like more information. Please give me a call on: 07769046223 or click here to send me an email.

If we find that I am not the right counsellor for you, perhaps I can be of assistance in finding the right therapist and therapy that you require.

Having a good therapeutic relationship with my clients, where they feel safe, is paramount to the way I work.

I really enjoy working with student counsellors, during their training. I offer a reduced rate for offering this service.

I am an experienced qualified supervisor, I offer supervision to qualified counsellors.

I offer supervision to student counsellors at a reduced rate.

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.

Counselling room is on first floor. However alternative room is available on ground floor if required. Free parking directly outside.
