About me and my therapy practice

Reaching out and recognising you may need help can often be the hardest part of beginning a relationship with a counsellor.  I offer you a confidential space to work together to explore your inner thoughts and feelings.


I am a qualified person-centred therapist which means I work with you to develop a trusting relationship that can allow you to recognise the difficulties you are experiencing.  I believe you are the best expert about you.  I want to support you to be able to help yourself.  It is an important part of the way I work that we both feel at ease with each other.

I have many years experience working with clients with all types of problems.  I currently work as a bereavement counsellor at a hospice in Derbyshire.  My clients are from all over the East Midlands, Loughborough, Nottingham, Derby and Leicestershire. 

I provide face to face therapy sessions as well as video and telephone support.

About me and my therapy practice

My focus is always on you.  I aim to build a caring relationship where you feel listened to.  Past events can affect us for a long time. Let's make things change for the better.  

Counselling support can often help you to see things differently when life feels like its just too much.  A therapy session can give you time and space to explore what is happening for you.

My working hours are:

Monday - Wednesday 9.00 - 5.00 pm 

Tuesday evening - on-line only 

Saturday 9.00 - 1.00 pm 


Practice description

You don't need to be in crisis to have therapy.  If you're experiencing difficulties therapy can often help to put your thoughts and fears into perspective.  Together we can work towards a more contented you whether in one session or more, being listened to can have huge benefits.

I offer you the space to talk about how you are feeling working towards the person you want to be.  Life for many of us has been stressful.  A short call will give us the opportunity to check out and see whether you fell comfortable with me.  It is an important part of the way I work that we develop a trusting, caring relationship.  

I presently work using both video links, telephone and face to face sessions lasting 50 minutes. Please enquire for details of availability. 

My first session

Prior to our first session, we will have made contact either by email or phone and I will have asked you for your details so I can send you some paperwork and a copy of my contract for you to read prior to the session. 

This will give us time to talk about what you would like some help with.  You may wish to tell me a few things you want to talk about in our future sessions.  

This session will be an opportunity for us to build a relationship where you feel accepted and listened to.
