About me

I am an experienced, qualified Child and Adolescent Counsellor. I have worked in schools as a counsellor for many years, having previously been a teacher and Special Educational Needs teacher. I also have expertise in helping parents whose children display challenging behaviour.

Counselling for children and young people
Counselling with me takes different forms, depending on how each person wishes to communicate, whether through words, play, art or a combination of these. Within a confidential, warm and respectful therapeutic relationship, my aim is to help each person to find a way through the difficulties that may be holding them back, so that they feel happier and more emotionally balanced.

Parenting support
Parenting is hard as well as fantastically rewarding. Sometimes parents and carers feel that they need support to find solutions to the challenges they face. I offer an initial parent/carer consultation which can be used to decide on the most helpful way forward for you and your family. If appropriate, I can deliver a tailored therapeutic intervention of between 6 and 12 sessions.

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

DBS check

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.
