About me

*Please note I am currently fully booked, if you would like to be added to my waiting list please get in touch*

You've tried hard to work through things on your own but you now need some extra help. Maybe you're feeling emotionally overwhelmed or underwhelmed. You know something needs to change but don't know what to do next. Perhaps your imagination runs wild with all of the possible things that could go wrong and it seems impossible to make positive changes. Through counselling we can work together so you can feel calmer, happier and in control of your future.

I am an experienced, compassionate psychotherapist and I can help you to find a way forward. Whether your difficulties are from the past, present or future you don't have to struggle alone. My counselling room is a safe, confidential space where we can work together so you can begin to feel happier, confident and able to enjoy life again.

I understand thinking about attending counselling can be difficult. Maybe you know exactly what you'd like from counselling but if you're not sure I will gently guide you through the process. I can help you to build a picture of how you would like your life to look and feel. Please get in touch to find out more.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy and I am an experienced psychotherapist and mental wellbeing consultant.

In addition to my private practice I am founder of wellbeing consultancy The Peachy Mind and I have worked in a variety of organisations from schools, charities and forensic settings to providing workplace counselling for employees.

It is important to me that you gain what you are hoping to from counselling and as an integrative therapist I will tailor my approach to best meet your individual needs. I am led by you and what you feel ready and able to work on.

My counselling room is based at The Mill in Derby. It has its own private entrance and free onsite parking.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
