Due to the Covid-19 situation I am able to offer Skype or telephone sessions as an alternative option if you feel you may have been exposed to the virus but still wish to receive counselling.
One to one counselling is still available as normal.
Please contact me for further details if you would like to book one of these alternative sessions.
I provide a flexible and affordable private counselling service in the Stockton Heath area.
I am passionate about working as a counsellor and feel honoured to be a part of someone's journey to a more peaceful and fulfilling place. I practice general counselling seeing clients with a broad range of issues such as depression, bereavement, relationship problems, anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, stress and family issues
On a personal note I am an approachable, genuine and open person. I do not judge and have a natural ability to support and empathise with others. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all regarding counselling and/or psychotherapy or if you would simply like more information.
How it works
I understand that the idea of visiting a counsellor can be daunting but my approach is Person-Centred and non-directive and I will work alongside you and at a pace that it right for you.
We will sit in a relaxed, confidential, safe and comfortable room together and talk and explore; it’s as simple as that. You are in control of what areas you want to talk about and explore. Sometimes it is painful and difficult but at others it’s liberating, enlightening and life-changing! Honesty, transparency and open-ness between the client and therapist are vital ingredients to its success. My experience and skill will help us to shed light on unhelpful and helpful behaviour patterns and find ways together to negotiate a clear path.
The length of time it will take varies from person to person, but we will regularly review our progress. There is no obligation to continue if you don’t want to or it is not working for you, and the contract can be terminated at any time.
My service is totally flexible so we can organise a course of sessions that suits your needs. I can also offer home visits for anyone living within the viscinity of Stockton Heath and Howley. You can either call me or, if you prefer, send an email. I am always happy to answer any questions whatever they may be.
I will get back to you as soon as possible, usually within 24 hours.

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.
Accredited register membership

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).
