About me

Hi I am available for online counselling i.e. Zoom and Skype.  I also offer telephone counselling.

There are times in our lives when we may need a little bit of help and are struggling to cope with anxiety, depression, loneliness and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) which can become a part of your everyday life.... Taking the first step to helping yourself is sometimes the hardest.….

​I am an experienced counsellor based in Milton Keynes and surrounding areas, offering a safe and non-judgemental space for you to talk about your thoughts and feelings that maybe affecting you or your loved ones. As an integrative counsellor, I have several counselling approaches I can use which can be tailored to your needs.

Counselling sessions can either be face to face in my counselling rooms based Woburn Sands, online or on the telephone.

However, at times it can be difficult sitting in a room whist having a counselling session, therefore I also offer walk and talk therapy where our counselling session can be held in open spaces, i.e. parks. This can be discussed at our initial assessment.

I offer both short and long term therapy.  Please contact me by phone or email to book your initial assessment/session.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and studied an Integrative Approach. I have also worked with Rape Crisis for over 3 years and I am now in Private Practice.

I offer online counselling - either face to face (zoom, skype, facetime) and telephone.

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.

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.
