About me

I offer both long and short term counselling for a wide range of issues. I work in a relational and client centered way to create a programme of therapy which meets your needs.

My aim is to help build your confidence, and to work with you to develop strategies which will help and support you long after therapy is completed.

My work explores the roots of the difficulties you might experience, helping to understand the underlying issues and put them into context.

Once you are ready, we'll take a solution focused approach, using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Creative Visualization, Mindfulness and any techniques which you want to bring yourself to work with those issues.

I am also a qualified and experienced counselling supervisor. Please feel free to view my supervisor profile on this site.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been counselling since 1998, mostly in the field of addiction. Working with this challenging and vulnerable client group has given me experience of working with all the issues that often attend addiction problems, for example, trauma, abuse, bereavement, relationship issues and mental health problems, so I am confident in dealing with any issues which a client might bring.

Currently I am in private practice where my clients bring a broad range of issues that they wish to explore. My work is relational, seeking to build a warm and trusting therapeutic partnership with my clients, and working with them to achieve the goals they have set for themselves.

I hold a Level 5 BTEC Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.

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.
