Welcome to The Counselling Alliance

Counselling, Psychotherapy and Supervision in-person, online and telephone

You have decided to make some positive changes in your life and had the courage to reach out and seek support. I am an experienced professional with a passion for helping people. Contacting me could be the starting point for healing and move forward. As we near the end of the year and the start of a new year, what do you need to be different?

  • Perhaps you are struggling with anxiety, depression or symptoms of stress?
  • Maybe life feels difficult and a daily uphill battle?
  • Perhaps you feel stuck in a personal relationship and need to make some changes?
  • Strong emotions like anger, frustration, anxiety or sadness feel overwhelming.
  • You could be feeling isolated from others and disconnected from yourself.
  • Maybe you need to work through something you have never spoken about before so you can move forward?

I work with people from all walks of life and backgrounds to address a diverse range of life issues. I am a fully-qualified BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist and I work within the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy code of ethics.

You have decided to make some positive changes and had the courage to reach out and seek support. I can help you.

Working With Me

I can help you develop resilience and personal growth and a sense of choice and control about how you move forward. We will discover your goals and review our work frequently to ensure it meets your needs and expectations.

I consistently see tangible and life-changing results during my work with people from all walks of life and backgrounds with a diverse range of challenging life experiences. I offer a range of counselling approaches to provide the right support to meet your individual needs.

Whilst it can feel daunting to share things for the first time, you may find a sense of relief by getting things off your chest. We will work at a pace which feels safe and comfortable enough for you. I will also challenge and prompt where needed and make observations and reflections to encourage links, insights, and ‘lightbulb’ moments. This can help you understand yourself more, become self-aware and develop a better relationship with yourself and others around you. When you open up and let another person really see you, the transformation starts in how you see yourself and how you relate to others.


Counselling can help support you to make the changes that will help you lead a more contented and fulfilled life. Read more about my approach to Counselling and how I can help you.


This can help with deep-rooted issues that impact your relationship with yourself and others. Read more about my approach to Psychotherapy and how I can help you.

Frequently asked questions

Can I talk to you?

I work with adults over 18 yrs. I am inclusive to all backgrounds, faiths and gender identities. If you are facing a problem or difficulty in your life, or wants to understand yourself better or wants to improve your overall sense of well-being and contentment with who you are. In a recent study by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), over half the people in the UK have had or know someone who has accessed therapy to help them with difficulties at some point in their life. More and more people are realising it is good to talk and get support when needed.

Can I tell you something that I have never told anyone or find it hard to say?

Yes. I am here and ready to listen, with warmth, caring and without judgement. We can be explore different ways to share so that you can open up in a way that you feel most comfortable with, whether that is telling me directly, or using drawing or other materials to help you express yourself. We work safely towards finding a narrative for your experiences so that we can work with them and lessen their impact. You do not need to take care of me by editing what you say, which may help you 'get it out'.

How do I know I can trust you with what I tell you?

An important part of my role is to create a safe space so that you can develop trust, open up, and share what you need to. I take this responsibility seriously and will not discuss what you share with me with anyone else unless I am required to do so either ethically or legally. As a Senior Accredited Member of the main governing body for counselling in the UK (BACP), I adhere to a professional code of ethics which includes strict rules about confidentiality. I will explain this more fully when we meet and it is in our counselling agreement so it is clear.

Have you worked with someone like me?

I work with people from all walks of life and backgrounds, coming to me with a diverse range of life issues. Your experiences are unique to you - no-one else has seen them or felt them like you have. However, recognising that others may have gone through something similar, in their own way, can help remind you that you are not alone and that you, too, can recover and move forward. Let's work together on the things that are troubling you.

How long is a session?

Each session is 50 minutes.


Fees are from £70 per session. I offer a free introductory 15-minute call to talk about the kind of support you are looking for, how I can help and to arrange your initial counselling session.

How long will I need counselling for?

We can meet and work together as long as we both feel it is helpful, whether that is for a few sessions, a few weeks, months or years. We work towards goals and improvements in your life and everyone has different factors to take into account. These may be the nature of the issues you are bringing to therapy, how much time, energy and cost you can commit to, and the type of therapy that you try. Short-term therapy may be for a period of 6-12 sessions, and longer term therapy can be more open-ended. We will build reviews into our work together, so we know where we are and make sure you are getting what you need.

Can I use private medical insurance?

Yes. I am registered with these Insurance Providers as an Affiliate Practitioner; AXA, Vitality, Aetna, Allianz, Aviva, Cigna, WPA. Please ask about fees as these are slightly different to account for necessary admin and invoicing. Please let me know the pre-authorisation code from your insurer so I can invoice them directly.

Can we meet online?

Yes, I work online via Zoom (using a password protected link), WhatsApp or FaceTime, by telephone and in-person. Working online is effective and convenient and offers flexibility. How would you like to meet?

How do I book a session?

Please use the contact form below, or call or email me to arrange a free introductory call and arrange your first session: 07855 033993 / thecounsellingallianceltd@gmail.com

All enquires are answered within 24 hours, Monday to Friday.

All contact is strictly confidential and uses secure phone and email services.

Cancellation policy

A minimum of 48 hours notice is needed if you need to change or cancel a session, otherwise the full session fee is due. This does not apply to scheduled changes or holidays. This enables me to manage appointments effectively and avoids appointments being unused. Appointments need to be used to achieve the full benefit from counselling. It is important to attend each week as consistency and regularity of sessions provides the best chance of a successful outcome. If I am on holiday, unwell, or it is a bank holiday, there is no charge.

My location
