About me and my therapy practice

Bereavement, Loss and Grief Counselling

I help people who are grieving the loss of a loved one by listening to them, supporting them and understanding their unique situation.

How does it feel to be grieving and you're finding that you need to be supporting other family members too with their loss-leaving no time for you to grieve?

I wonder whether you are feeling like you can't keep talking about the person you miss, as you feel you don't want to bother people with your sadness?

It may have been a while since the person you love died, and you're thinking those around you expect you to be 'over it' by now?

I'm wondering if any of those situations sound familiar to you?

How would it feel for you to be listened to? Time just for you and your story to be heard? To have some time- time just for you?

My clients have told me that , even after the first appointment, they have felt different, just by being listened to, heard and accepted.

Every person's grief is unique to them. Having grieved myself, I know that every person has their own unique thoughts and feelings which are not like anyone else's.

To book an appointment, please send me an e-mail and I will respond within one day.

Practice description

Please see my website for more information:


I have six years' experience in counselling clients with various presenting issues , from working as a volunteer counsellor at a local Christian counselling organisation.

I work with adults over the age of 18 years.

As a bereavement counsellor, I have an understanding of grief and how each person grieves differently.

This ensures that you will receive a bespoke session, tailored to your counselling needs, at each session.

I offer some face to face appointments which are now held in a private, quiet counselling room, with parking outside, so you can be confident that your sessions with me are completely confidential. 

I will listen attentively, offering kindness and support, without any judgement , to your personal story and work with you to achieve the best outcome for you, to enable you to live a fulfilling and purposeful life.

As a Christian, I can offer faith based counselling, if you would like this.

I still offer counselling online, which enables you to easily and safely access counselling services from your home.

I am trained in both online (Zoom) counselling and telephone counselling , I am happy to give training on using Zoom if needed, this training is at no cost to you.

I am a Member of ACTO (Association for Counselling and Therapy Online)

Headphones are worn to ensure complete privacy during your phone or Zoom call.

Please send me an e-mail to arrange an appointment.

My first session

I offer a 20 minute initial appointment before the first session, just to get an idea of what it is you would like counselling for, and to talk about how you want to have your first session, for instance if you would prefer Zoom, face to face, or phone counselling.

With our first session, you would need to allow around 90 minutes to include going through the counselling contract and for me to take some information about you, for example contact details and some brief questions about your situation before we start the counselling session. 

The session will give you the chance to find out if we could work well together,  as it is really important that you choose a counsellor that you are comfortable with, as a good counselling relationship is so important in your counselling journey .

You are free to choose how many sessions you need, there is no requirement for you to have a set number of sessions as everyone has different needs and situations. 

Please send me an e-mail to arrange an appointment.
