A warm welcome
There are times in all our lives when we need someone to talk through our problems with. Counselling can provide a safe environment in which you can explore troubling situations, thoughts and feelings, including those that were once deemed too traumatic to deal with.
The therapeutic relationship can be very powerful when resolving difficult emotional situations, and as a result present day challenges can be more clearly understood. The purpose of the therapeutic relationship is not only to relieve suffering, but also enable you to discover a deeper self understanding. This deeper sense of self can help to facilitate a more positive outlook on life.

I offer confidential and professional counselling for individual adults and couples by telephone, face-to-face or email. My approach is called ‘Integrative’, which means that I may use counselling techniques from different theorists during your treatment. Examples include Psychodynamic and CBT.
I am a warm, caring and empathic person who is passionate about the therapeutic relationship, a cornerstone of the counselling process. I developed a passion for listening early on in life, often being referred to by friends as a good sounding board. I studied Psychology at college and then went on to complete a BSc in Psychology, and Diploma’s in Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
As well as running clinics at four private practices in Wellingborough, Northampton, Bedford and Milton Keynes, I work as a senior lecturer in counselling psychotherapy for Chrysalis at the University of Northampton Park Campus site. My role is to prepare other counsellors for private practice. I also spent six years volunteering with Samaritans as Deputy Director for Volunteer Care.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS) and a member of the NHS Directory of Complementary and Alternative Practitioners. I also work for the NHS as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner.
