About me

Counselling Directive

Emotional and mental health well being are important for everyday living.

You don't need to feel isolated and suffer in silence, when the day to day life becomes difficult to cope with and can leave you feeling dissatisfied and unhappy with yourself and your relationships. Talking through and exploring your feelings with an experienced therapist in a safe and supported environment can be helpful. I understand that choosing the right therapist is not easy, and in the first session we can explore what you are looking for from  therapy.

I am a qualified experienced Person Centred Therapist and I recognise that everyone is different and a unique individual. My aim is to help people find their voice and inner strength to realise their potential to be true to them self.  I am easy to talk to and non–judgmental and I work with wide-ranging human issues including: making adjustments to major life events, abuse, ageing, anger, anxiety, childhood neglect, chronic pain, cultural complexities, cults, depression, eating disorders, family issues, grief, health worries, relationship difficulties, sexuality, self-harm, panic attacks, and personal and work stress.

As of 1st February 2024, I have moved my practice to:  teIephone , online - (Teams), and  I will also be providing walk and talk therapy. If you are interested in working with me please get in touch via email in the first instance.

 All sessions are confidential and free from judgement,  I can help you to reduce feelings of isolation and help you to build courage to work through your problems and make changes that are right for you in your life. The client is at the centre of their therapy and I provide guidance, support, reflection, observation through the therapeutic process.

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.

Further information

Here is what you need to do to get started in counselling with me:

Call me on my mobile - 07812081064 or email me to make an appointment or to have a chat about what you are seeking from counselling, this is also an opportunity for both us to see if we can work together.

Counselling sessions are open ended, that is, you can come for as long as you need to work through your problems.


You pay at the end of each session in cash or bank transfer. If you are unable to attend a session then please give me 24 hours notice if possible, otherwise I will have to charge for the session. I understand that there unforeseen circumstances that can arise which will prevent you from giving me 24 hours notice for cancellation and in this instance I will reassess the payment.

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.
