About me

As an experienced  'Person Centred'  accredited counsellor with the BACP and  I strictly adhere to the BACP code of ethics.

I feel the relationship between counsellor and client is key and so I offer a safe, confidential environment, led by you, the client, and as such will not judge or offer advice but will listen, explore and reflect back what I hear, see and feel, giving you space and time to discover your own resolution.

I  work with individuals, couples, groups, organisations  with both adults and young people. Clients may be self-referred, via GP, occupational health, insurance companies or EAP (Employee Assisted Program).

I can also offer counselling via telephone or Skype.

If you would like to know more about me or the counselling process then please feel free to contact me via my mobile or email and I will more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
