About me

Hello and thank you for visiting my profile and for taking the first tentative step along the path to being able to live life more fully. It is good that you are paying attention to your own well-being and are considering counselling.

I am friendly and approachable and your well-being is at the core of the work we will undertake together. The aim is to work collaboratively alongside you, so you can look at past or present issues that are causing you concern.  Counselling is about spending dedicated time, where you and I can look at concerns you may have and burdens you may be carrying. This will be in confidential, non- judgemental sessions accepting you as you are.

You may wish to phone me on 07503959550 or you may feel more comfortable emailing me on  It is really important that you feel comfortable and for us to be able to build a relationship.  You can be assured that what you say in the room is confidential.  There are specific circumstances when, in order to keep you safe I will need to make an exception, such as if you are at risk.

I offer face to face therapy in a secure environment, where there is wheelchair access and disabled parking immediately outside.

I am DBS checked and a registered member of BACP. I am fully insured and attend supervision and continuing professional development.

I am happy to undertake both short-term work of 6-10 sessions, where we can focus on specific issues, as well as longer-term work.
