Bereavement background

I worked as a Bereavement Counsellor and Supervisor for ten years. I developed a speciality in helping people who had been bereaved traumatically through road traffic accidents, murder and suicide and I facilitated a Suicide Support Group. This bereavement work, throughout "the troubles" provided invaluable experience.

Private practice

I established my private counselling practice in 2004 and I work with a vast range of issues. The practice is very well established and is continuing to grow due to recommendations from previous and existing clients and healthcare professionals.


I am accredited by BACP (The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I am on the professional standards authority accredited register.


I am a BUPA recognised therapist.
