About me

As we begin to emerge from this challenging time, many relationships will be feeling the strain. Couple or individual counselling, either face to face or online can make such a difference, as we explore concerns and find effective ways forward.

As an experienced Relationship Counsellor I have an excellent understanding of relationship issues and have worked with many individuals, couples and families to find resolutions to their difficulties.

Most relationships at some point experience challenges and it is common to be:

  • Tired of the same old arguments
  • Wondering where the initial sexual attraction has gone
  • Missing fun, laughter and closeness
  • Reeling from the impact of an affair
  • Considering separation or divorce
  • Divided over a desire to have children
  • Exhausted by the demands of a young family
  • Struggling with teenage children
  • Wondering what to talk about now the children have left home

Relationship counselling is an opportunity to take stock and reflect with someone who has seen many variations of these scenarios before.

Having worked as a Relate counsellor since 2013 and gained a Masters Degree in Relationship Therapy, I have witnessed, on many occasions, the positive changes that counselling brings.

As we work together, I will help you either as an individual, couple or family to begin to make sense of what is going on for you, and decide the best way forward.

We will find more effective ways to communicate, reduce the conflict in your relationship and begin to understand one another better.

We will unravel some of the misunderstandings and hurts and begin to talk about difficult things in a way which is constructive and helpful.

We may consider how the past might be affecting the present, and plan ways in which the future could be different.

My focus is always to help you in a way which enables you to feel in control of the outcomes of your counselling.

At our initial meeting I will explain what to expect from counselling and explore your main concerns and goals. In addition, you have an opportunity to sense whether I am the right counsellor for you. I offer a reduced RATE of £30 for the initial session. After this, we will then schedule some regular sessions which will last an hour. I am available for counselling sessions Monday to Friday, from 8am–8pm

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

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.
