About me

I understand that the decision to have counselling is a big step which for many takes courage.  It can be hard to decide which therapist to choose, amongst so many qualified and experienced professionals.  I am pleased to say that the majority of my work comes from personal recommendations and some of my clients will return for further sessions when a need arises.  I see every person I work with as an individual and our work is tailored to reflect this.   As an Integrative Therapist I am trained in Transactional Analysis, CBT, Person Centred Approach, Gestalt and Attachment Theory.

I have been an Integrative Counsellor for over a decade and have worked extensively with Adults and Young People. I am a grounded, insightful and supportive therapist who works from a place of compassion.  I will bring dedication to our work together as we explore life's challenges, with the aim of empowering you to bring about the changes you are looking for.

I hope that you will chose me as your counsellor.  If so, I guarantee that you will be listened to with respect and without judgement.  We will work together as equals.   I know that life can bring many challenges and it can feel that we are lost without a sense of direction or someone who understands.  You need not feel alone any longer.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their Ethical Framework and Guidelines for Good Practice, details of which can be found at

Member organisations


Accredited register membership


I offer a free 30 minute session for you to meet me and decide if I am the counsellor for you. It also allows me to assess the issues you want to deal with and decide on the best therapeutic model for us to follow.

Sessions are £40 an hour. I believe that good counselling should be accessible to everyone so I offer a concession to those who cannot afford £40.

You can contact me by phone on the above number. If you need to leave a message you can be sure that this is only heard by me so your call remains confidential.

Cancellations – Please note that 24 hours notice is required if you wish to cancel a session. If notice is not given the session will be charged at the full rate.
