Welcome to my website
Please have a look to see if you think I can help you.
A bit about me…
I am trained as a psychotherapeutic counsellor. I use an integrative approach, which means that I use my knowledge of different therapeutic approaches such as Person Centred Counselling, Psychodynamic therapy and Cognitive therapies (CBT), to find a flexible approach that best meets the needs of my clients.
I have many years of experience of working with people from all walks of life. Recently as a counsellor and for over 20 years as a social worker. I have worked with adults, children and young people. I have worked with people with family and parenting problems, relationship problems, homeless people, and people with alcohol and substance misuse problems. I have worked with children and young people in care, and have an extensive knowledge of the care system, and of fostering and adoption.
I am on the accredited register with the National Counselling Society. This register has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. I am fully insured. I am committed to my ongoing professional development and attend regular supervision.

I can help you change your perspective on issues in your life...... so you can look at them in a different and more constructive way.
What I do…
I will provide a safe and confidential environment, where you can talk and express yourself, and feel listened to with warmth and empathy.
We all experience difficult times in our lives, often they are a result of things that have happened to us. The beliefs, thoughts and feelings we hold on to as a result of this can inhibit us from feeling happy and fulfilled. In therapy I will help you work through any areas in your life where you feel “stuck” and where you experience problems. I will help you understand and change your perspective on the issues in your life, so you can move on and manage your problems in a different and more positive way.
I have a comfortable private room available for counselling. Sessions last 50 minutes, and we can agree together the time and day we meet.
I charge £45.- per session, £65 for couples. Payment can be made by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
It is very important for you to find a therapist with whom you feel safe and comfortable. Please email or call me for an initial chat, free of charge and with no obligations, to see how we get on.

- Anxiety and stress
- Low self-esteem and low confidence
