Adv Dip Couns (MBACP)

“Naming, owning, then processing. Change is possible!”





As your counsellor, my role is to provide a safe space to help you overcome the various hurdles that life may currently be throwing at you at any given moment.


I really enjoy my job! Being a counsellor means I can empower people to begin living, not just existing. I'm here to help people adapt and evolve in the ways they may want. Change can happen!


I am a qualified and registered counsellor with the BACP, and for over 20 years I have worked with individuals and businesses to help them change, adapt, and grow through personal and professional challenges. I view my clients non-judgmentally and will provide you with the space you need to explore your internal process.


It may sound obvious, but no two clients are the same - we are all unique as human beings. My counselling skills and experience enable me to tailor our sessions to ensure we are fully focused on you, and your therapy goals. 


I believe that within themselves everybody has the capacity to change - you just have to want to...engaging with a counsellor is an important step in this! My style is down-to-earth, warm, and genuine. I'm aware that counselling can be a daunting experience for many people, even if you have had therapy before. I will work to do all I can to make the experience a positive one for you.


I have experience of working in the following areas, although this list is not exhaustive:


  • Abortion
  • Abuse
  • Addictions
  • Adoption
  • Anger Management
  • Anxiety (personal and workplace)
  • Attachment Disorder
  • Bereavement and Loss
  • Cancer
  • Career Issues
  • Depression
  • Domestic Violence
  • Emotional Abuse
  • Low self-confidence
  • Low self-esteem
  • Miscarriage
  • OCD
  • Panic Attacks
  • PTSD
  • Relationship issues
  • Separation and Divorce
  • Stress

If you are going through something in your life and you don't see it on this list, why not get in touch and see if I can help?

Why I became a counsellor

I began training as a counsellor in 2011 following a decade of experience working with individuals and teams in a behavioural consulting environment.

I have worked with a variety of people during my consultancy and counselling careers, from senior managers and business owners to retired folk and teenagers, from ex-offenders to police officers. I enjoy the relational depth that comes from my work, and I have been able to enhance my skills in order to be able to help people on a more emotional level.

Away from work I love family time, walking the south west’s glorious countryside and coastline, and serving in the community.

I work out of our therapy rooms in Wellington and provide face to face, virtual, and telephone counselling. If you’re interested, why not leave a message for me on our answering service 01823 765065, or email me directly.

I am also a director and counsellor with Wellington Community Counselling, providing low cost counselling services to the people of Wellington. If you feel you would be eligible for this service, please visit the website by clicking here and completing a referral form.
