About me

Are you unhappy? I provide face-to-face counselling in Nunthorpe to help you understand why. You want things to change, but you don't know what or how. Somewhere everything went off track. You’re not fulfilled but you don’t seem to have the time for anything you want to do. Perhaps you’re lacking confidence or don’t know where you’re trying to get to. You’re trying to ignore the nagging feelings of gloom, but it’s bringing you down. I can help you to understand what is holding you back. I can help you to see things more clearly, to be the best that you can be and make the happy and satisfying life you want to have a reality. Seeking counselling is a sign of strength, that you are ready to change and want to be free from anxiety and sadness.

I am a counsellor. I am also a Mum, a wife, a yoga & cocktail lover (not usually at the same time!). I’m a book reader, a Trekkie and a secret Kit-Kat eater! Before I became a counsellor I worked as a business manager for 20 years. All of this experience gives me a wider perspective on understanding how you feel because I’m a real person. A person you can tell things to without being judged. A person you can tell secrets to safe in the knowledge they’ll be kept forever and a person who wants to understand how you really feel, without you having to pretend or filter what you say.

I want to help you to feel better. I just need you to want that too.
I’m waiting to meet you, so send me a message now

Training, qualifications & experience

I can offer different types of therapy depending on what is most appropriate for you. I provide person-centred therapy or CBT, but my preferred way of working combines both styles to provide tools to help you feel better quickly, but also address underlying issues that have led you to where you are now.

I am a patient, reassuring and empathic counsellor. I can be inquisitive and challenging when needed, to help you get to the bottom of is troubling you. I believe that the client-therapist relationship is at the heart of the counselling I provide, and we will work together to help you to feel better.

Life events and changes can bring out a number of unexpected and difficult emotions. I have extensive experience with issues of bereavement and grief, chronic illness, anxiety, depression, domestic abuse and self-confidence, to name but a few. I put the client at the heart of my work, and want to work with you on the journey of self-discovery and change that counselling provides. You deserve to be happy, and together we can make that happen.

I am qualified to degree level, and am a member of the BACP to ensure ethical practice. 

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.
