About me


I am delighted to announce that I am now able to re-start my services subject to ongoing government COVID-19 restrictions.

​This means that I am now able to offer you the choice of in person or online sessions giving you greater choice and control over how to get the best from the services that I offer at a time and place that best suits you.

I am known for being warm and approachable, and being able to offer a supportive and positive experience for clients.

I have particular experience of working with bereavement, loss, chronic illness, and recovery after a relationship breakdown, redundancy, major life change, anxiety conditions, and post-lockdown recovery of confidence, purpose and motivation.

Why not try a free 15-min consultation without obligation to help you decide if you would like to arrange further 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.

Accredited register membership

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

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


After careful consideration and review of circumstances because of the effects of COVID-19 I am currently unable to take on new clients in 2020.

Further information

I also offer emotional wellbeing mentoring which is different from counselling or coaching because it aims to help you manage the effect that poor emotional and mental health or disabilities, including learning disabilities, can have on your life at home, school, college or work.

It aims to help you develop a personal understanding of your difficulties, build self-awareness and self-confidence, learn how to use practical strategies and skills to be able to develop and maintain good organisational and problem-solving skills, better emotional management.

Emotional wellbeing mentoring can be very helpful for anyone one with emotional and mental health difficulties that have a significant impact on their ability to carry out day to day tasks, work and social activities, travel or study and can be a major help for anyone with additional life challenges such as Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, additional learning needs, disabilities or major illness.
