About me

Do you feel alone and misunderstood? Do you feel there is no one you can talk to who will keep your confidence and understand how you are feeling?  If you make the decision to come and share those feelings with me, I will offer you a safe, confidential and supportive space where you can talk freely and where you will be listened to without judgement. An environment where  you can be yourself and where you don't have to pretend that everything is OK.  Making the decision to come for a counselling session is the first positive step in improving your mental health.

I accept everyone without blame or labels, with compassion, respect and professionalism. I do hope you come and see me because when we work together exploring your feelings, you can become empowered to bring about changes which will help you manage the way you live your life.

You can either call or email me to arrange an initial session.  If you are happy to continue, we will set up  a second session and thereafter meet at the same time each week or fortnight for either short term or long term counselling - whichever is required. Sessions cost £40.00 per hour.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified person-centred counsellor with six years experience, working with clients from all walks of life.  My clients have suffered relationship issues, bereavement, anxiety and depression. I have an ABC Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I am Registered Member of the BACP.

In addition, I can help by offering you a natural, non-judgemental warmth and kindness combined with a strong sense of empathy and understanding of the way you feel.

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.

Wheelchair user access


I work from a private room in Amersham, Buckinghamshire where there is plenty of free parking space.
