About me

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

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile on Counselling Directory. Finding the right therapist can be difficult and it's 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 hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Person-Centred Psychotherapy and Counselling from the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute, a Diploma in Clinical Supervision, an ILM level 7 Certificate in Executive Coaching and Mentoring and am an Accredited Mediator with UK Mediation.

I work from comfortable premises near the centre of Long Eaton, which is easily accessible by public transport with free parking available within a couple of minutes' walk. The premises and my room is suitable for those with mobility issues and is wheelchair accessible. 

I also offer sessions online via Zoom. Clients are asked to ensure they have a suitable venue for virtual sessions ensuring confidentiality can be maintained.

I accept payment via Bank Transfer which should be made 2 working days prior to the session time.

Please note I am an accredited practitioner with the BACP and work within their Code of Conduct and Ethics.

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)

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.

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.
