About me

COVID-19 Statement

During this time of uncertainty, I still have immediate openings for tele-therapy (video or phone sessions) and can support you in these difficult times. I can offer you a free 30-minute initial session. Thereafter, I offer flexible days/times and reasonable fees.

About me

I am a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist, providing short or longer-term counselling and psychotherapy to clients. I have a wide range of experience in helping people to grow emotionally and work through challenging situations.

The areas of work I specialise in include:

  • Low self-esteem, stress and anxiety
  • Depression, loneliness and isolation
  • Feeling stuck in life
  • Relationship problems.
  • Personal challenges and development - mid-life crisis
  • Work-related problems - unemployment, bullying, retirement
  • Troublesome thoughts, feelings and behaviours that are causing distress

I also specialise in working with students (all ages) in managing their educational issues including:

  • Academic-related anxiety and stress
  • Overcoming procrastination
  • Exam stress and anxiety
  • Time management
  • Pastoral support

Open and approachable, I can provide you with a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to openly and freely talk through and explore your thoughts and feelings. I will help you reflect on what it is you want to change in your life and support you in moving your life forward.

For some people as few as 6-12 counselling sessions will be sufficient whereas, for others, longer open-ended work is more appropriate.

At present, I can offer an initial free online/telephone session. Thereafter, I can provide flexible days/times, duration of the sessions, and reasonable fees..

To arrange an initial appointment, you can contact me  on: 07740 948 609 or by email.

Training, qualifications & experience

Following a successful career in business and education, I am a fully qualified and accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I have worked in a number of therapeutic environments with a diverse range of clients, and provided counselling services for several established charitable organisations. I also run a number of psycho-educational groups, including self-esteem, assertiveness, anxiety and depression, life crisis and mindfulness groups.

As an Integrative Practitioner, my therapeutic approach draws on a variety of psychological modalities to explore behaviours and beliefs which might be preventing you from leading a more fulfilling life - one that is more authentic and in service to you.

I believe that lasting change is achieved through a supportive, open and trusting therapeutic relationship between practitioner and client. I have worked with people from many different backgrounds and circumstances with a wide range of difficulties and issues.

I  hold a Doctorate in Education, am a qualified Learning Coach, and am really passionate about supporting students in their educational journeys. Having worked in an education and training environment for many years, I have a great deal experience in both the Further and Higher Education sectors, providing academic/pastoral support to students and practitioners.

My work is professionally supervised and I adhere to the ethical guidelines set out in the BACP/UKCP Codes of Ethics and Practice.

The first 'full' session will provide us with the time to find out more about you (including taking some basic information) and answer any questions you may have. I then hand the session over to you, giving you the space to tell me something about the difficulties you might be experiencing and what you are hoping to achieve in counselling.

Appointment times are flexible and we can work together to find a time that will suit your requirements. They will usually take place at the same time each week (evening appointments are possible), but some flexibility can be offered depending on availability.
