About me

  • Our mental health is so important especially now when we are facing uncertainty. I am offering telephone counselling to new and existing  clients during this time. Varied packages available please enquire.

You've made the first step on your counselling journey

Counselling offers a non judgemental, confidential and safe space to think and talk about anything which you may feel confusing, overwhelming or painful. It is a therapeutic relationship which encourages you to explore your feelings, together with someone who is empathic, impartial and trained to listen.

I will not judge, criticise or tell you what to do but I will help you to explore your feelings, thoughts and personal experiences to help you move forward.

It is not always easy to talk about what may be happening for you, or to express or even get in touch with your feelings, the therapeutic space will help you work through these difficult times by getting in touch with your own inner resources and strength, enabling you to manage life more effectively and facilitate your own personal change, growth and healing.

I am a fully qualified counsellor working one to one with adults based in Burton on Trent.

I am a registered member of The British Association for counselling and psychotherapy (BACP), I am bound by their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions, ensuring the work is safe and confidential.

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.
