About me

Life can feel overwhelming at times and we all experience difficulties, this is even more so with ongoing effects of Covid 19. Have you been feeling sad, anxious or depressed? Sometimes talking can help. For many, counselling can provide a way of moving forward and overcoming life's challenges.

As a qualified Person-Centred counsellor I provide a safe and empathetic space, where together we can explore any issues at your own pace, enabling you to make the decisions that are right for you.

Life can feel lonely, especially if a relationship is experiencing troubles. Talking these difficulties through with an impartial and non judgemental counsellor may help to bring a sense of understanding. I offer sessions to both individuals and also couples on a short or long term basis, depending on your needs.

Face to face counselling may appear daunting to some. However, Walk & Talk therapy in the open air can provide a more relaxing experience.  For some individuals walking side by side can be a beneficial alternative to face to face counselling.

I offer a free 30 minute telephone consultation where we can discuss your needs and you can ask any questions you may have.

Please call or email to book a consultation or for information.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Volunteering at an addiction centre has given me valuable insight into the difficulties faced by both the individual involved and also their loved ones supporting them.

I have worked with both male and female clients for a range of different issues.
