Life doesn't always go to plan! We can find ourselves in situations and relationships, experiencing emotions we don't understand or know how to deal with. Counselling provides time and space just for you. Time to talk through feelings, time to explore who you are and what you need.
How can I help you?
By exploring your unique needs and experiences, whether individually or as a couple, in an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion, I work with a holistic body, mind and spirit approach to enable you to express emotions, while discovering your inner strengths and new ways to move forward.
Through counselling I offer help with:
- relationship issues
- anger management
- personal development
What happens next?
Each person is unique and each persons situation is different, so the number of sessions you require is also individual and reviewed frequently. I therefore offer an initial free introductory phone call to assess your needs, whether counselling with me is right for you and to explain the formal requirements for safe practice. Please make initial contact by email to arrange a call.( emails answered 9-5pm Monday to Friday)
I charge £35.00 per session with sessions lasting for an hour.

I have also completed training in Couple Therapy
My counselling experience has been developed thro
- North Worcestershire Bereavement Support counselling service.
- Impact Alcohol and Counselling Advice Service in Shropshire.
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.

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).
