About me

I believe that natural positive growth happens when the therapeutic relationship between the counsellor and client is a safe, non-judgmental and understanding space. Only then can a client feel safe enough to explore parts of themselves that they have previously found difficult or painful to address.

I offer an Integrative approach to counselling, which means I look at the person as a whole, including their thoughts, feelings, behaviours and environment. I have a Person-Centred base, where I believe the client innately knows what is best for them and can achieve that in the right conditions. I also use other modalities, depending on what the client needs. This may include the use of CBT skills for anxiety and low mood, or the use of Transactional Analysis to work on problems within interpersonal relationships. 

I believe therapy is a collaborative piece of work between the therapist and the client.

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I am available to work with adults and young people, subject to an initial assessment. 


£45.00 - £50.00

Additional information

I can offer telephone or video counselling at £45 for the 50 minute session. 

I can also offer in person face to face counselling at £50 for the 50 minute session. 

I can also offer walk and talk therapy, subject to locality and an initial session to establish if this is suitable. This would be £50 for a 60 minute session. This is great for those of us who like to be in nature and have the dual benefits, or struggle to be still for long periods of time.

When I work

Availability may vary each week.

For more flexibility in times and dates, Zoom is a great option.
