Sometimes in life we have worries that are difficult to overcome and may affect our mental and physical health and our relationships. 
Your feelings may be too painful or private to discuss with family or friends.
Talking with a professional counsellor can help you explore these feelings in a confidential environment.
 You can unburden your concerns, big or small, and have the chance to move on to a more contented life. 
Getting to this stage and actively looking for someone to help you is a huge step forward.


MA(Hons), MA, FdSc Counselling
I am an experienced counsellor who is warm and down to earth by nature. I am married with young adult children and an assortment of animals. I love the outdoors.
My early career was in building conservation, however, in mid life I decided to go for counselling myself to explore unresolved childhood issues associated with addiction problems within my family.
I know first hand how powerful counselling can be and how it can change your life and relationships for the better. This led me to retrain as a counsellor so that I could help others.


I have a degree in Person Centred Counselling and this is the basis of how I work, building a trusting therapeutic relationship in which positive change can take place.

Sometimes I integrate other skills and techniques when appropriate, such as :- elements of psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), transactional analysis and mindfullness.

I counsel individuals on a very wide range of issues and have a particular interest in addictions and bereavement.

In recent years I have worked for Pathways to Recovery in Worcester and Aquarius in Shrewsbury, helping people overcome the harms of alcohol.

I was a voluntary counsellor for North Worcestershire Bereavement Support for over ten years.


My counselling room is a calm space in a converted stable in the heart of the South Shropshire countryside. It is easily accessible by car from Cleobury Mortimer, Tenbury Wells, Ludlow and Kidderminster for face to face counselling.
I also offer online counselling via ZOOM which reaches clients all over the country.
I would be delighted to have an initial free consultation with you via email or phone if you have any questions or queries.
Thereafter my appointments are 50 minutes long at a cost of £50 per session.
