About me

I was once told ‘this too will pass’ and I have found the difficulties in my own life have done so. However, I could not do it alone, as it felt too tough a journey to be on. Looking back today, I am glad I had a counsellor to listen to me and support me throughout my journey.

You may feel as I did overloaded, confused and questioning why?

I believe counselling gives us the space to get to know our real self. As your counsellor I will listen to you with empathy and compassion, help you see your strengths and show you kindness as you work through your challenges.

With my support, over time your difficulties will too pass and you will be able to lead the life you want.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm a very experienced therapist and educator and have been practicing therapeutically for over 20 years. I've provided support in a broad range of settings ranging from voluntary clinics, educational settings, corporate support services and within the ASN sector.

I am trained in a range of therapeutic modalities and I'm really happy to tailor sessions to your needs.

I specialise in providing support to individuals and families who are struggling to make sense of life events or struggling to deal with complex emotions.

I have worked extensively with young adults, who are challenged educationally by autism, dyslexia, ADHD.

My experience also lies within the college and university sector supporting those who are struggling with the pressures of modern life.

I am additionally trained by Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training.

I also support those who are challenged emotionally by self-esteem issues, anxiety disorders, body image and depression.

I am happy to discuss with you any areas of concern. Please call or email me so we can discuss how I can help you.

I can offer evening and weekend sessions.

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 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.
