About me

LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS EASY and we can feel isolated and alone. I would like to help you find a way through whatever is troubling you, for you to discover new perspectives and strategies to find wholeness in life again.

Individual counselling

I work with adults of all ages who come with many different issues such as anxiety, panic attacks, depression, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, self-harm, eating disorders, family issues, feeling sad, generalized anxiety disorder, relationship issues and bereavement.

My approach to counselling is integrative which means I draw on several different counselling approaches to match what I think will help best in any given situation.

I will offer you a calm, confidential space online or within my home in Oakhill to give you time to explore your thoughts and feelings on any aspect of life. Together we will gently explore these feelings, to gain understanding and through that help you find answers. I will not judge you or be shocked at whatever you feel you would like to talk about.

I know for some this journey of discovery will be achieved in a few weeks and for some, the journey may be longer so I am happy to offer you short or long-term therapy to suit your needs.

Couples counselling

I can also work with you as a couple, helping you to understand your patterns of relating to one another.

We may, depending on your needs, work on setting a joint relationship vision, enhancing your communication skills and developing your conflict resolution skills as well as looking at how to heal from past or current hurts.

I do not take sides but aim to listen to both of you equally. I will not judge you or be shocked at what you feel you would like to talk about.


I realize that it can take a lot of courage to pick up the phone to ask for help but would encourage you to try and not continue struggling alone. Please text me, email me or phone me now to arrange a time to talk to me.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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).
