I work with individuals to help them overcome a variety of concerns such as bereavement, stress, anxiety, trauma, depression and relationship difficulties.
I offer a confidential space where we will work together, at your own pace, to explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences to help you make sense of things and understand yourself better.
Before embarking on a career in counselling my background was working for the NHS and Hospices which has given me extensive knowledge of working with people who are distressed. I have worked in a hospice for 20 years, which has given me experience of working with people facing life limiting illness or bereavement.
It can be very dauting to reach out and seek counselling. Taking this journey with a counsellor you feel comfortable with is really important. I therefore, offer a free 20 minute, no obligation,telephone conversation to determine if I am the right counsellor for you.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
