About me

It takes a leap of faith to make contact with a counsellor and then it is important for you to feel safe, confidential and supported without judgement for you to be able to start to work together. It is therefore wise to book an initial consultation to see how you feel with the person and for me to assess if I am the right person to help you.
Since the start of the covid pandemic we have all had to adapt to online working. This has proved to be surprisingly successful. It allows people to feel relaxed in their own home environment for appointments. It is also proving easier for partners to attend together in couple counselling. For this reason I have decided to work entirely online using video. This can be via Zoom, whattsap , teams or skype.
Here are 4 reasons to choose me as your counsellor.

1. I have over 20 years experience as a general trained counsellor in all the areas listed on my profile below. I am an accredited member of BACP adhering to their code of ethics and conduct. I am accredited with B.I.C.A for the support of fertility issues and clinic treatments.

2. I have reasonable fees for the private sector which reflect my wish to provide counselling which is affordable to all. 

3.I am a practicing specialist in counselling individuals and couples with relationship and fertility issues. I have worked  in a licenced fertility clinic for many years and can therefore prepare and support people considering fertility options before, during, and after treatments.

4) I have worked for years with people experiencing a cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.
