About me

I am a couples, children and young people and family counsellor with 15 years experience as a Relate counsellor

I also work with individuals who may be having issues  with relationships in general. For example I have worked with persons who wondered why their relationships always came to an end after in a familiar pattern. I also work with adult family members like aunts, uncles, adult siblings or parent (s) and their grown up children. I can only work with a maximum of four family members and children must be five years and above.

I work on an Integrative basis, mainly with, Person Centred,  Systemic, Psychodynamic and BRIEF Solution Focused Theories. My sessions go from 50 minutes to one hour.

The first session is normally an initial assessment to assess the suitability for the type of work being sought after by the client. I may have to refer on or advice on the type of work that would be more suitable.

I can offer face to face,webcam, Skype and telephone counselling services. For wheelchair users I will not do face to face counselling, only phone or Skype counselling

I understand that counselling can be a daunting experience, especially for those attending for the first time. I would like to assure you that you have nothing to worry about as counselling has a very human face to it whereby your safety and emotional well being is my priority. A good relationship between us and working collaboratively is what I aim for, so we can find a way forward for you in your situation.

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.

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.

Wheelchair user access

There is no wheelchair accessibility at the current venues from where I do my practice. I can only do telephone, Skype,or webcam counselling for wheelchair users.
