A warm welcome...
It takes courage to seek counselling... I understand this and would like to reassure you; my priority is to ensure you feel valued, accepted and respected.
I understand and respect that each client is unique, has walked their own path, with their own story to tell... I feel privileged to be a part of that journey and aim to enable and empower my clients to make positive changes in their lives.
My counselling qualifications are very thorough - beyond degree level. I hold a specialist PostGraduate Diploma in Counselling Children & Young People. I'm a member of the BACP.

I see clients, often referred to me by West Mercia police at The Glade; forensic Sexual Assault Referral Centre, Worcester & Telford & I am highly experienced in pre-trial therapy.
