Hi and thank you for visiting my website.

I will be on extended leave from 10th November 2023 to June 2024. 
Please note that I will not be checking my emails or phone during this time. If you would like me to contact you upon my return, please complete a contact form and I will get in touch upon my return. 

This is not an emergency service, if you are experiencing a mental health emergency and believe your or someone else's life is at risk call 999 for support.
If you are concerned about your or someone else's mental health contact your GP or 111 for support. If it is out of hours you can find your local walk-in clinic here: 

If you would like to speak to someone the Samaritans can be reached 24/7 by phone 116123 or email at

Free Consultation

Finding the right counsellor can feel like an overwhelming task, I provide a free 20 minute consultation where I will answer any questions you may have and to make sure we're the right fit.

Online Counselling

If you are someone with a busy life, this is a somewhat flexible way of accessing counselling. You will also retain a record of all of our sessions that you can go back and review when needed. This can be used on its own or in combination with online and/or telephone counselling.

Email Counselling

Counselling from the comfort of your home or anywhere you feel safe.  Online counselling provides flexibility of being able to connect without spending time or money on travel, giving you the opportunity to use that time in a way that is important to you.
