About me

I am currently working in-person and online. Online sessions are available using MS Teams, Zoom and WhatsApp.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile on Counselling Directory. Finding the right therapist can be difficult and its important to find someone with whom you can feel comfortable and safe. I offer a truly non-judgemental and warm approach where you will be accepted as the unique human being you are. By enabling you to speak openly about what is happening in your life, I will join you in exploring your thoughts, feelings and behaviours to help you to find lasting change and a different future.

I work with a wide range of adult clients and believe that support is valuable for all. Whether you are 18 or 80 it is never too late to change or create a different life story. I offer both long term and short term work with you in control of the content and the duration: it is my role to guide and support your own process not impose my own.

Many clients have commented that my way of working helps them to feel accepted, understood and trusted. This helps to build a relationship where clients can be honest and open about their issues and supports a depth of work where long lasting change can be found.

I also believe that there is room for humour in therapy. Smiles and laughter are hugely beneficial for our psychological health and enabling people to find joy in life is one of my driving beliefs.

I am trained to work with any presenting issue and commonly work with:

  • anxiety and fearfulness
  • depression and sadness
  • dealing with sudden change such as bereavement, redundancy and divorce/relationship difficulties
  • survivors of trauma and abuse
  • living with long term and life limiting conditions eg diabetes, MS, ME, Fibromyalgia
  • gender issues and stereotypes
  • loneliness
  • lack of motivation, low energy, resilience

I enable and support my clients to lead the process as my work is underpinned by a strong belief that we all hold our own answers: we may just need help finding them.

I am also a qualified and experienced developmental coach offering an alternative approach to exploring personal change which is helpful for those wanting to focus on the future and make positive lasting changes to life and work. Please ask for further details if you are interested in a coaching approach.

Mental Health Consultations

If you have concerns about the mental health of a friend, family member or colleague I now offer a consultation service to help you explore how you can support them and encourage them to seek the help they need.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.

Key details

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.

My counselling room is on the ground floor which is accessible for those with mobility issues.
