About me

I have a wide range of experience  and skills gained from  working within differing counselling settings. This has provided me the opportunity to develop an extensive range of therapeutic approaches which I adapt specifically to match the unique needs of my clients.

I have worked  in a GP' s surgery, a university student counselling service, a perinatal counselling support service and  an online children and young persons counselling support service.  I am currently working within a mental health counselling support service.

Within my own practice I deal with individual clients from 5-85 years of age combining my previous mainstream and special education experiences with my counselling skills. This combination enables me to provide a personalised approach with every client.  I am confident, competent and experienced  in dealing with a wide range of life challenges across al ages.

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.

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.
