About me

I have been practicing as a counsellor for over 20 years and, through my work, I have been privileged to meet many beautiful and unique human beings.

I believe within counselling, a meaningful and trusting relationship with another human being is a vital part of the therapy, and that it is this relationship with another that enables us to understand and accept ourselves and to heal and grow.
I feel I have the qualities of self-awareness, genuineness or realness, empathy and an acceptance of others; all of which I consider to be vital in order to develop a therapeutic relationship with someone who is looking for help, with whatever it is that has led them to seek counselling.
As a counsellor I view myself as a fellow traveller, sharing a part of the client’s journey through life, for as long as they want me alongside them. I always feel both humbled and honoured when someone puts their trust in me and invites me to walk alongside them for a while and to share with me with their unique story.

As a counsellor, I have extensive experience of working with both individuals and couples. I have worked with a wide variety of issues including, anxiety, depression, family and relationship issues, stress, work related issues, trauma and bereavement. I also have considerable experience of working with clients on the autistic spectrum. 

I offer both face-to-face and online counselling, depending on availability. Although counselling has traditionally been face-to-face, since Covid I have found that online sessions can be a very effective form of counselling.  Many clients have found this a good way to access counselling, and it can provide more flexibility and convenience, including being able to be in their own space.

If you would like to arrange an appointment, I would be pleased to offer you either a short telephone chat or a full payable session with no obligation to continue. 

I work within a small counselling organisation called Lemon Grove Counselling & Therapy, which is run jointly by myself, and fellow counsellor, Marco Centonze. We set up Lemon Grove because we both believe in the same approach and our aim is to create the peace and tranquility that goes hand in hand with the healing process.

Our counselling room in Broughton Grange is situated in a tranquil, yet very accessible location on the outskirts of Kettering, only a few minutes drive from the centre of Kettering and 15 minutes drive from Corby and Wellingborough. The private and homely room is located within a building shared with other companies and health professionals. There is ample free parking at the location. However, for those with restricted mobility, please be aware the room is located on the first floor.

(Please note, although the postal address for Broughton Grange is Headlands, it is located near Kettering Golf Club on the edge of the town).

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.
