About me

I am a person centred counsellor embarking on private practice having worked in the field of addiction and family relationships for several years. My own experience leads me to believe in the importance of being listened to in an open and non-judgemental way. Just to have the space and time to explore emotional issues can be invaluable as a way of resolving past or present difficulties.

I am experienced in all aspects of counselling havingworked for many years with people who have had issues with drug and alcohol misuse. Low self esteem, lack of self confidence and self believe, anxiety, depression, issues around trauma and abuse to name a few of the difficulties I feel I could help and support clients with.

I have also worked extensively with families and individuals when relationships become strained for many different reasons. Families in modern days can be very diverse thus communication with each other can be misunderstood leading to breakdown in the family structure.

As I am just beginning private practice my fees will be discretionary and concessions can be discussed for students and unwaged people. I offer a first 30 minute session free as a way of ensuring, as far as possible, that I can meet your needs.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
