About Me

I continue to offer Skype/Zoom/Facetime and telephone counselling alongside offering meetings in person.

As a person-centred psychotherapist and counsellor with 17 years of counselling experience, I offer a secure, welcoming and confidential space in which you can be understood and valued.  Together we will reflect upon and explore your particular challenges with a view to making sense of how things have come to be as they are.  I hope to help you become un-stuck and to help you feel able to take part fully in life once again. 

I work in a person-centred way with adults with a broad range of experiences including relationship issues, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobias, anger management, family issues, addiction(s), separation/divorce, bereavement, eating disorders, abuse, low self-esteem, stress and low self-confidence. I also offer counselling supervision.

I practice from the village of Hayfield in the Peak District National Park. Additionally I offer outdoor therapy in Hayfield (10 miles from Buxton, 5 miles from Glossop), at the heart of the Peak District / in the foothills of Kinder Scout.

Experience and Training
I trained at The Sherwood Institute in Nottingham and hold a Masters research degree in Humanistic Person-Centred Psychotherapy. I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Supervision and I also hold a BA (Hons) in Philosophy. Additionally I hold a Certificate in Ecotherapy.

I have experience working with adults in a variety of settings and have focused experience working with adult carers and women experiencing distress and challenge. Alongside my private work, I have worked for Breast Cancer Care facilitating a support group for women living with secondary breast cancer and I have both lectured and tutored on the University of Salford's Counselling and Psychotherapy BSc and MSc courses.

​I have a particular interest in taking therapy outside and have completed extensive training in this area.  Outdoor Therapy allows for an alternative means of therapeutic exploration and facilitates a wide spectrum of related insight. 

I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and a member of the BACP and as such adhere to associated codes of ethics.
