About me

"Penny has been a godsend and I will never let her go!! I have had a number of counsellors in the past, and I am so relieved to have found the right one...I would LOVE to recommend you.. in my opinion, everyone should have Penny in their lives"

I provide a calm, welcoming, space away from the pressures of your everyday life. Giving you the opportunity to make sense of your feelings, thoughts and experiences.
I'll help you rediscover your strengths and abilities and maybe recognise and develop new ones when planning for your future.

These are a few of the issues I can help you with:

  • family & relationship difficulties
  • anxiety and depression
  • self confidence and self esteem
  • bereavement, grief and loss
  • work, employment and career concerns
  • impact of health conditions
  • understanding & managing anger
  • stress and its triggers and impact

As a fully qualified Integrative counsellor I adapt how I work to suit your needs. I have worked with the NHS, schools and local charities on both a long and short term basis.

I am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their ethical guidelines.

Counselling helped me explore and understand how my past has influenced the way I react to things that happen in my life now...Letting go of the past has helped me look to the future in a much more positive frame of mind. FB September 2015

Further information


"Counselling has been of massive value in my life to-date, more than I could have ever imagined.... I’m more aware of how I’m feeling and why I am feeling that way, which means I now have a choice of how I react. I’m more able to deal with situations which occur in my life in a positive manner, no longer becoming overwhelmed, or paralysed by fear and indecision. I have more energy, know what I need to do to look after myself, and am in general a much happier person. I am fully aware that I will face further challenges in my life, but now feel I will be able to manage these with the skills I have learnt in counselling." CN August 2016

"I already have recommended you to two people. I liked the space/environment in which you conduct your sessions,
your manner and personality and the way you conduct business. I felt very relaxed and comfortable in each of the
sessions I had with you, even when the sessions brought up strong emotions and physical’re a very professional individual whilst being empathetic towards your client" October 2015

" I have found this very helpful and has changed my outlook for the future". June 2013

"Penny was a perceptive and intuitive listener......she helped me feel normal again" February 2012

"Thank you for your help and understanding" August 2010

"I found counselling really helpful, it definitely helped me with self-knowledge which I found very interesting and valuable and my stress levels improved immeasurably from the start of my counselling to the end. It enabled me to be a nicer, calmer person to the people around me at a difficult time because I felt more sure and settled in myself" December 2015

"Thank you so much for all your help and support. I was in such a dark place when I first contacted you and you gave me hope and helped me see that there was a future" February 2016
