The kind of counselling I undertake

I work in a humanistic and integrative way in the East Midlands region, and am a member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).

You can read the full details of my experience and qualifications here.

I work with adults of any age (17+ years).

Loughborough and Leicester: location and access

Sessions are undertaken face to face in a pleasant, comfortable and relaxing room in my home in Loughborough or at Rutland House Counselling and Psychotherapy in Leicester. If you are unable to get out easily or find travelling difficult, I will also travel to your home.

By Train: my home is five minutes direct walk from Loughborough train station, so easily accessible from South Nottinghamshire, Barrow, Syston, Sileby and Leicester.
