About me

At this difficult time for all of us during the Coronavirus outbreak, it's going to be more important than ever to reach out and share your mental health concerns.  I am offering Covid-safe face-to-face appointments in Doncaster, as well as still providing telephone, text and online appointments for those who prefer this method of keeping connected at this time. Home visits will be considered in Doncaster and Lincolnshire where appropriate to do so.

I am an experienced psychotherapist/counsellor working with clients through a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma,  low self-esteem, historic child sexual abuse, sexual violence, domestic abuse, bereavement, betrayal, chronic pain, relationship worries, divorce, PTSD, weight worries, anger management, loneliness, bullying etc. I offer Individual, Couples, Group and Family counselling/psychotherapy. Our mental and emotional well-being, just like our physical health, can become unwell. As a result, our relationships with others can become difficult to manage - whether they are of a personal nature or at work. Talking with a non-judgemental person can be helpful to explore what you are going through and to help you discover clarity and potential solutions.

I'm eager to encourage clients of the older generation who may feel reluctant to seek talking therapy support for various reasons. I'm happy to consider Home Visits if Covid-safe to do so.

I have an Enhanced DBS certificate.

I’m a qualified integrative therapeutic counsellor and Clinical Hypnotherapist whose practice is underpinned by Humanistic/Person Centred theory but is also completely individualised to suit your needs and can incorporate a collaboration of Systemic, Solution Focused, CBT, Psychodynamic and Person Centred approaches.

I am also a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist. Please contact me to book your free 30-minute Hypnotherapy assessment. Hypnotherapy can also be used to help with many different issues including confidence, stress and anxiety, stopping smoking, phobias, infertility and hypnobirthing etc.

Please feel free to telephone, text or e-mail me for further information about any of the services I offer.

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy.

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.
