About me

Are you struggling with a present difficulty or an ongoing issue and you feel you need to talk to someone.  Are you experiencing anxiety or stress which is becoming unmanageable.  Most of us experience dark times especially given the ongoing pandemic and one of the hardest things is asking for help. I am compassionate and sensitive to your needs and have over 20 years of experience as a counsellor.

I have experience in working with a diverse range of problems,  for example;  Relationship problems, low self esteem and lack of confidence, loss and bereavement, Anxiety and stress, depression and Panic attacks. Sometimes we feel like we are struggling but not sure why. Counselling can help make sense of your struggle and I can offer you a non judgemental space and support where together we can work towards positive change.

I am able to offer face to face counselling via zoom or WhatsApp. Alternatively you may prefer telephone, email or text, whatever way is right for you. Some clients have found they actually prefer the convenience of being in the comfort of their own home and of not travelling. I am a certified online and telephone counsellor.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified counsellor with over 20 years experience. I have also been a lecturer in counselling and owner of a successful training company. I have been Head of a Counselling Service and am passionate about helping people reach their goals.

I have experience in working with a diverse range of problems including Relationship problems, low self esteem and lack of confidence, loss and bereavement, Anxiety and stress, depression and Panic attacks. Maybe there is an area of your life you would like to improve.

I have worked in  Woman's Centre's, Halfway houses, Rape Crisis centre and Domestic violence charity organisations. I have worked with people recovering from drugs and alcohol addiction, relationship breakdown, couple counselling, bereavement, anger, self esteem, stress, depression and low self esteem.

I have also worked with the police in providing counselling and support for young victims.

I have run workshops on Understanding Anger, Assertiveness, Build your Self Esteem and workshops on Anxiety and Stress.  I have a particular interest in Anxiety, self esteem and stress.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
