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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

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.
