I am a Person Centred counsellor with experience in helping individuals to navigate their sensitive thoughts and feelings. I offer a safe space for you to talk freely about anything without fear of judgement and our sessions can be short or long term engagements. Your wellbeing will be my sole focus and will lead the direction of our work together. Individuals come to me with a wide range of emotional needs, including anxiety, depression and bereavement, loss etc., and I continually strive to offer conditions which will enable you personal growth, empowering you to become secure in your self and promote positive mental wellbeing.
Talking is hard and there are many reasons why it can sometimes feel as though talking to others doesn't seem to be an option, such as believing there are individuals whose problems seem much worse or not feeling properly heard, especially when others tend to talk over us. I neither believe a person's concerns are less worthy nor will I talk over you.
From my personal experience I know how huge taking the first step to counselling seems and the importance of finding a perfect 'fit', someone who you feel comfortable sharing your innermost thoughts and expressing your emotions with- who you can trust. It is crucial you are not only heard, but also that you feel genuine warmth, understanding and know that what you share remains largely confidential.
Please either call, text or email me if what I'm offering sounds as though it could suit your needs or if you have any further questions. I do try to reply within 24 hours.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Assessment sessions are £30.00
Assessment sessions are normally up to 45 minutes long and will usually involve me asking you some questions to get an overall general idea of what your current problem is, and why you have chosen counselling now. There will also be a discussion about the type of talking therapy I offer, and if we both agree it would be helpful to you.
Each ongoing weekly 50 minute counselling session is £45.00
My fees are reviewed annually.
When I work
Some early morning and evening appointments are available, especially online via Zoom or 'phone, please either email, text or call me for more information.
Talk to me about what concessions I offer, the past year has meant finances are stretched for some, that doesn't need to be a barrier to accessing counselling.
