From time to time life may feel a little overwhelming. The opportunity to gain a greater understanding of our thoughts and feelings can often help. This is when counselling may be of benefit to you. My counselling approach aims to provide a safe, supportive, relaxed environment where we can work together to help you gain insight into the problems you feel are preventing you from making the most of life and to work on developing strategies and understanding to enable you to move forward in a more positive way.
I have experience working on a one-to-one basis in a variety of therapeutic settings with a wide cross section of society and cultural groups. I am able to provide counselling for adults, couples and teenagers.
I have experience working with issues of depression/anxiety, physical, sexual or emotional abuse, relationship problems, family issues, bereavement and anger management. I have a specific area of expertise working with bereavement and anticipated loss.
I offer short term counselling where the focus may be on one or two particular issues and longer term counselling where a greater depth of exploration of your problems may be required to provide a positive outcome to your counselling experience.
My office is in Hinckley and I have appointments available during the day and in the early evening.

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.
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).

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I charge £50 per session.
Each session lasts for 50 minutes.
You can contact me by email or mobile phone and if you decide to proceed further we will arrange an introductory session, charged at the usual rate, to give you a chance to see how counselling might feel with me and for me to see how I might be able to help you achieve your goals. You are under no obligation to continue after this if you do not feel comfortable to do so.
