About me

Do you suffer from anxiety, depression, feeling sad, have panic attacks or struggle to think clearly? If so, then I can help. Past experiences or harmful relationships can impact your ability to cope. Call me now for an exploratory discussion.

I offer Integrative counselling in a confidential, compassionate and accepting environment. Processing your experiences and perceptions in a neutral space allows exploration of the impact events have on us as individuals and helps us to make sense together.

I have worked with clients who have experienced abuse, neglect, bereavement, trauma, eating disorders, stress, depression, anxiety and work-related issues. My practice offers a comfortable space, unconditional acceptance, empathy, compassion and confidentiality.

Before training as a counsellor I was a mainstream secondary school teacher, specialising in English. I have had twenty years experience teaching students of all backgrounds and levels in both South Africa and England. Most recently, I have been teaching young people with emotional and behavioural issues.

I realised during my teaching career and training as a counsellor that each individual has their own unique perspective on their world and it is crucial that each person is heard and experience a sense of self-worth.

I believe that my background enhances my work with creativity, compassion and intuition.

I look forward to meeting you.

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.

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.

Wheelchair user access


I offer flexible appointments evenings, Fridays and Saturday mornings.
