About me

I am a dual trained counsellor & mental wellbeing coach and can help you manage and overcome many of the changes, challenges and problems of life to create a brighter future. With more than 20year's  professional experience you can be sure of a quality service from me. 

Talking about our emotional and mental wellbeing can be hard- as well as knowing what will help. Because I offer both counselling and mental wellbeing coaching, I have a flexible approach to appointments it provides you with the service that best suits your needs and that allows you to choose the best way of working for you.

In my counselling, I have special interests in working with young people and adults to support them through bereavement and major life change,

As a coach I have experience of working with people to promote good mental wellbeing coaching; helping them overcome a range of difficulties such as anxiety, stress and low motivation and mood to enable them get the most out of life. I have significant experience as a non-medical mental health mentor with people with a range of neurodiverse conditions and disabilities.

Mental wellbeing coaching is suitable for young people 16- 25 experiencing anxiety, time-management, difficulty meeting assignment deadlines and exam stress etc., in their school, college and university life

I offer longer term work but I am also trained to offer 'one-off' or single session help so that you can choose which approach best suits you needs and budget.

In person, online or telephone appointments now available.

I also offer low-cost self-development workshops for those who prefer to learn and laugh with others. Visit my website for further details.

Member organisations

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.

Additional information

I offer a sliding scale of fees dependent on your circumstances. Please feel free to ask.

I offer ongoing sessions for longer term work or 'one-off' single sessions of help. You might choose a 'one-off' session because you only need, want or can afford one session, or because you want your sessions to be occasional as the need arises.

Because I offer a flexible approach to sessions they can be spread over different periods of time in different ways in a way that suits your life and lifestyle.

In person, online or telephone appointments now available.

The key thing is that during the initial free 15 minute consultation we can discuss which option best suits your individual needs, diary and budget.  

Please feel free to ask about fees tailored to your circumstances.
