I believe passionately in Person Centred counselling. The more experience I acquire the more I am convinced in how well it can work. I offer confidentiality, I am non judgemental. I offer a safe place to be and to explore your feelings and thoughts. I believe that each person is the expert in who they are, how they feel, their past, their hopes for the future. In my work I follow the client wherever they lead me and we work together, as a team, to address whatever issues they bring to the room. I believe that the relationship between client and counsellor is key the therapy, without it therapy will not work.
I have worked as a volunteer counsellor for Myton Hospice for 6 years and Shakespeare Hospice for 5 years. I have enjoyed the challenges this work brings, have learnt a huge amount and have been continually humbled by work there. I have also worked as a volunteer at Safeline, a charity which supports survivors of sexual abuse, again gaining a lot of experience along the way.
I enjoy working with couples, adults of any age, gender, sexuality, class or religion, adolescents and children and have had a wide range of experience in, for example, depression, anxiety, grief, anger, bereavement, sexual and domestic abuse, self harm, family issues, relationship difficulties, low self esteem and lack of confidence, family issues, separation and divorce.
I charge £40 per one hour session with an individual and £70 per 1.5 hours session with a couple.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Our first appointment I offer at £20 because it is a 'getting to know each other session'. I believe that the relationship is the key to therapy working so it is important we make sure we can work as a team.
All further sessions are charged at £40 per session which can be paid by BACS, cheque or cash.
I am available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Thursdays, depending on my diary. First appointment of the day is 10am and the last 6pm
