About me

The Corona pandemic has us living in new territory. If you're experiencing loss, abandonment and isolation, don't suffer alone. I'm currently offering low-cost online sessions.  Life can be a challenge in all sorts of areas of our lives and these challenges may occur at any time.  Sometimes we just need that extra independent support to help us work through these challenges.  I am a qualified counsellor in TA Practice, with more than 8 years' client experience.  I work face-face and online with adults and couples over 18, relationally, in a safe, comfortable, and private space, in which you can express/articulate how you think, feel and behave.  We work together with what's between us.  No judgements.  I may use Mindfulness to help ground you in the here and now - effective when you're feeling particularly anxious, or may be worried by factors outside your control.  If working face-to-face, I may work creatively using sand tray and drawing where appropriate.

I offer short and long-term counselling.

I can work online with any time zone, with anyone, anywhere in the world, all you need is either a smartphone, tablet or computer and headphones and a private space.  If you're seeing me face-to-face, I am situated 2 minutes walk from Goring-by-Sea Station platform.  Should you come by car, there is free off street parking available.

My working hours are:

Monday 08:00 - 21:00
Tuesday 08:00 - 21:00
Wednesday 08:00 - 21:00
Thursday 19:00 - 21:00

The first session is charged at £25 and will help us to decide whether or not we can work with each other.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the Link Centre and hold a Diploma Certificate in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy Training.  I have a UKATA Diploma in TA Practice and am working towards my CTA exam to qualify as a Psychotherapist.  I am a registered member of the BACP.

I have many years' experience of delivering Client Therapy, some of which have been, and still are, at St Barnabas Hospice delivering Loss and Bereavement Counselling.

I have more than 30 years' experience working full time in the Corporate World as a Learning and Development Consultant for blue chip companies and professional services firms.

My own learning is constant, whether through my work, on a course, attending a workshop, or simply living my life.

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.


UK Association for Transactional Analysis

UKATA (formally the Institute of Transactional Analysis) is the national UK Transactional Analysis organisation representing all fields of TA theory and practice. TA can be used as an effective tool in a wide range of contexts such as: personal development, management, coaching, counselling, psychotherapy, teaching, education, parenting and more.

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.
