About me


I am an experienced Creative and Sand Play Therapist and Trauma Counsellor that understands that we can experience many difficult challenges throughout our life's journey and that ,at times, we may need some support  to work through these.

To support you, I offer a flexible, emphatic,understanding,non judgemental approach that can include a variety of strategies, suited to your individual needs, in a safe,secure and confidential space.

My normal fees are :

£40 -50 per session.

However,I feel that cost should not be a barrier to accessing  support, so please contact me to discuss fees.

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.
