About me

Do you feel you need someone to talk to? Sharing painful, difficult, or confusing feelings in a confidential, non-judgmental environment can help.

I provide a safe and supportive place for you to discuss and explore your thoughts and feelings; to help come to terms with issues or changes in your life, or to promote personal awareness and growth. Counselling can help with many personal issues, including bereavement, depression, abuse, self esteem, sexual matters, relationships, or unresolved issues from childhood.

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor, using the style of counselling I believe best suited to your individual need to explore present problems and past experiences. As our motivations are often unconscious, understanding and resolving past conflicts can help a person live more fully.

I offer short-term or long-term contracts and we can discuss your hopes or expectations of counselling during our initial session.

Getting in touch...

If  using the landline number, when answered, state 'counselling', If I am not available, please leave your name & number stating the message is for me, but not personal information about the issue involved. I will call you back asap.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have used counselling skills for over 20years working within the NHS.  This experience, plus a personal trauma in 2004, drew me into qualifying as a counsellor and establishing my own private practice.

  • Diploma in Integrative Counselling
  • Certificate in Counselling Skills
  • Certificate in Working with Sexual Abuse
  • Relate Counselling Skills Certificate

As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy I am bound by the BACP Ethical Framework for Confidentiality and Good Practice.

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.
