About me

I offer clients the time and space to explore their thoughts and feelings in a non judgemental, accepting environment on a one to one basis. This allows clients the opportunity to explore their situation, feelings, any choices they may have and identify changes that they would like to make for themselves. This can be an extremely cathartic, empowering experience.

I promote a welcoming, safe environment where clients can feel able to relax and talk, a safe space where they can focus on themselves and often difficult issues they are experiencing in an empathic, confidential environment being offered unconditional positive regard.

I initially trained in the Person Centred Approach to counselling, but have continued my proffessional development and consider I use an integrative approach, tailoring the sessions to the clients needs depending on the presenting issue(s). This may be a talking therapeutic approach or a more structured form using CBT techniques.

I have worked in a private setting for a number of years and also have twelve years experience working within an NHS Occupational Health setting.  I have therefore had the priveledge of working with many clients with a diverse range of issues including:Depression, anxiety disorders, panic, relationship, bereavement, family, gender issues, family problems, bullying to name but a few.  I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and work strictly within these ethical guidelines.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
