About me

I can offer

—- Face to face counselling.
During the pandemic I have been working in a warm, safe, confidential area in an open barn, with overhead heating. From this barn there are spectacular views over our private farmland and a pond with ducks, geese & swans. This area is lit up for evening sessions. In the barn, we are kept company by the horses & the dogs (if clients are happy with this) Although we can return to my indoor counselling area, most clients are choosing to stay in the barn. The choice is there! 

—-Walk & talk sessions around the farm, which is planted with wildflowers & wild bird food seed. Wild life is in abundance. You will truly be immersed in nature. This is well known to boost mental well being.

—- Equine & Animal assisted Psychotherapy sessions. Either individual or group sessions can be arranged.

—Ride & Talk (clients with riding ability only)

—Opportunities to engage in ‘connection’ with dogs, horses and other livestock.

—Zoom, FaceTime or similar sessions.

Talking therapy can help people with many varied life difficulties. At times people have to cope with traumatic experiences and events or deal with developmental disorders, depression, anxiety, harmful emotions, behaviours or addiction issues.

With one to one therapy, I can help people to talk through these difficult issues and help them to understand what they are thinking, feeling and experiencing.

Counselling can and does change lives.

I also use Equine and Animal Assisted psychotherapies to encompass a range of treatments, tools and interventions to promote physical and mental health well-being.

Horses, in particular, make great companions for therapy because they can mirror and respond to human behaviour and emotions. No horse or animal experience is necessary for these sessions.

Please phone or email to discuss your needs and arrange an assessment session. A counsellor has to be the right person for YOU, so let’s chat about it first.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
