About me

I'm a therapist and counsellor based in Shrewsbury.  I work with people with a range of emotional issues who want a change for the better in their lives.

I'm now offering face-to-face sessions and I'm fully vaccinated. 

Therapy can help you overcome depression, anxiety (and generalised anxiety disorder (GAD)), low self-esteem, panic attacks, anger issues, addiction, feeling sad, and coping with family issues, separation and divorce, among many other problems.

​These issues or the harm of past trauma may in turn underlie such problems as eating disorders, addiction, insomnia, nightmares, and panic attacks.  Therapy provides a means to uncover and remove the obstacles to peace.

Beginning counselling can be daunting and you may want to know more about me before you take the step of booking a session.  I welcome any questions and offer, free of charge and without obligation, a 15-minute phone call to help you make your choice.  Counselling depends on finding the right counsellor for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a postgraduate degree in clinical counselling from Chester University.  I've worked with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, anger issues, addiction, feeling sad, and coping with family issues, separation and divorce, among many other problems.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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.
