About me

Counselling covers many areas and may be helpful in times of anxiety, grief, stress, parenting, relationships, anger management, lack of self esteem, bereavement, depression and family conflict.

I am an experienced counsellor and offer a face to face service on an individual basis, providing a listening and non- judgemental space for adults, young people and children.We will work together building a professional relationship in order for you to find solutions. Counselling is confidential and bound by the standards of the BACP allowing thoughts and feelings to be expressed away from family and friends.

I offer telephone counselling and online counselling and have extensive experience of working with those seeking help for bereavement and complicated grief.

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.
