I offer a warm, empathic, counselling service from my garden therapy room. (currently phone or online due to covid) I am now also able to offer Walk and Talk therapy outside.
I am experienced in working with clients with anxiety, and stress, bereavement, and autism, I aim to help you work through the things that are important, so that together we may find the best way forward. I am there for you, to listen, in a non-judgmental, way, giving you the time and space you may need.
I understand that it can be difficult to make the first move into counselling and will do my best to put you at ease so you may feel comfortable talking at a time when things may seem difficult. It can take great courage to seek help and to take that first step, I understand how this may feel for you. Please feel free to contact me for a free short initial call. I look forward to hearing from you.

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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Free initial telephone session
I offer a free short initial phone call
I charge £45 per 50 min session.
I accept bank transfer or cash payment.

Some evening appointments available
It is important to me to offer a space that you may feel safe enough to explore your feelings and trust that I will not judge you, and am able to sit with you alongside your feelings whilst we talk through them together.
Some clients prefer to be outdoors and would like to have walk and talk sessions in a natural environment. People may feel they have more room to talk outside and feel less constrained than in an therapy room. I am able to offer these locally and in most weather conditions, please contact me for further details.
