My practice is in a peaceful, semi rural location in Burnaston, near Derby and
Burton upon Trent
which is easily accessible from the A516, A38 & A50.

I am therefore ideally situated for Counselling in Derby, Nottingham, Burton upon Trent & Leicester.

I currently have clients from Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire & Staffordshire.

My counselling rooms are on ground floor level in a confidential setting and have wheelchair accessability.

As well as in person face to face therapy I also provide counselling by telephone and by Zoom video call.

I Can Help

I counsel individuals and couples and am a experienced counsellor in both short and long term face to face work.

Over the past 25 years I have helped many people who have suffered emotional and physical distress.

These experiences have included stress, anxiety, panic attacks, bullying, depression, bereavement, loneliness, sexual and physical abuse, suicidal thoughts and attempts, disability, eating disorders, sexual orientation, personal growth, self esteem, abortion
and relationship problems

I also have extensive experience giving Counselling Supervison to both qualified counsellors and trainees and I am a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor (Individuals)

In addition to general counselling, areas I specialise in are:

  • Abuse
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement & Loss
  • Depression
  • Disability
  • Eating Disorders
  • Health Related Issues
  • Relationships
  • Self Esteem
  • Sexuality
  • Stress
  • Men's Mental Health
  • Transitions and change
  • Spirituality
  • Suicidal Thoughts
  • Counselling Supervision

    Many people have a clear understanding of their problem, others come just knowing they are unhappy and that something is wrong in their life.


    Anything you bring to counselling sessions remains confidential unless it is believed that you or someone else could be at significant risk or harm.

    I offer an Initial Session Free of Charge to ensure that my experience suits your needs and to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

    Whatever your situation you are welcome to phone or e-mail me
