About me

  • During the the current  Covid-19 Pandemic I am offering Counselling via Zoom, a secure audio-visual link.

I am here to give you the space to talk about what is going on for you so that we can try and make sense of it together. A few sessions might be enough to help you or perhaps you feel the work might be of a more long-term nature. I have particular experience in bereavement and trauma.

I believe that everyone has the ability to grow and change. Sometimes though, it can just be so hard to understand how you feel and think about yourself and your experiences or losses.

Perhaps you are finding life difficult. You might be facing a challenge that seems overwhelming. Past experiences or losses seem to be affecting your everyday life. Or maybe it seems hard to find a way forward or make a change.

It can really help to talk through your thoughts, feelings, fears and concerns with a Counsellor who will help you to find a better understanding of yourself, your situation and solutions to your concerns.

How can I help you?

I work in a non- directive and supportive way. A trusting relationship between myself and you, the client is crucial. I offer a confidential, warm and accepting space where we can explore together your difficulties, your experiences and your inner thoughts and feelings. Through empathic listening, respectful challenging and gentle focusing I will support you as you express your thoughts and emotions and work towards finding your own understandings and solutions.

Coming for counselling is a sign of strength and courage to face what is troubling you. We can work together at your own pace. I won’t tell you what is wrong or how to put things right in your life. Instead, I offer a safe, non-judgemental space where we can explore together what is worrying you and find a new and hopeful way forward for you.

Member organisations


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 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.

Therapies offered

  • Humanistic therapies
  • Person-centred therapy


Our initial session will be for both of us to explore whether we wish to work together. It is important that you find the right therapist for you.

We will talk about what you hope to get from therapy, any concerns that you may have and what I can offer you. Will also talk about confidentiality, payment and the timing of our sessions.

If we decide that we would both like to work together, going forwards sessions will last 60 minutes, and we would usually meet at the same time weekly.

I charge £50 per hour. You can pay on the day or before you arrive on line. I do not have card facilities in my practice.

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.
