I am a professionally qualified Counsellor and Advanced Psychotherapist, providing individual and couple counselling, including CBT, on a short-term and long-term basis in an environment of calm away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Sessions take place in a caring and professional environment, which is sufficiently challenging to effect change. Working together I can help you gain better understanding of yourself, to overcome obstacles in your life and reach your goals.

I also work as Deputy Welfare Education Officer, delivering lectures to Army Unit Welfare Officers on subjects such as Loss and Bereavement.
Approved Mental Health First Aid Instructor for the Armed Forces.
There are a number of different approaches to counselling. The quality of the therapeutic relationship contributes to a positive outcome in counselling, which is very important in my work. I offer a non-judgmental approach, without discrimination on such grounds as sex, race, religion, class, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity.
My experience of working with clients encompasses a wide range of issues with clients from all walks of life.
I have the following qualifications Adv. Dip. PsyC, Dip C (Distinction), Dip PBC (Distinction), (MNCS) (ACC) and I am accredited by the National Counselling Society and abide by the ethics of the BACP.
