About me

I offer Adlerian counselling for adults in Buckingham and surrounding areas.

Clients from further away can access sessions online via Zoom, or over the phone.

Most of my clients come from a countryside background.

Having spent the first 35 years of my working life as a dairy farmer, I feel well placed to understand the challenges of modern rural living.

I also worked as a volunteer for Carers MK as part of my training and have a particular interest in offering carer support.

I have full professional liability insurance and hold a current clear DBS certificate.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, in person consultations will need to follow government guidelines. I am happy to talk in whatever way you feel most at ease.

Please visit my website for further details.

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-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.
