I am an experienced counsellor having worked in private practice for 14 years. If you are looking for someone to talk with to help you make sense of whatever you are currently going through, then I can help you. I don't label, diagnose or pathologise your experiences, but help you find your own meanings and I work with whatever is of most concern for you. I work within an existential framework and my thinking is informed by psychodynamic theories too.
I have experience in counselling for a wide range of issues including depression and anxiety, relational trauma, family patterns, relationships, abuse, ageing, parenting and special needs parenting, disability, identity, gender and sexuality, workplace bullying and mobbing, and those who are experiencing or have experienced narcissistic abuse in their family of origin or romantic relationships.
I can help you make sense of what you are going through or have been through, understand how your past is impacting the present, help you to explore your values and find what is most meaningful and important to you in your life and support you to make changes to your life if you wish to.
I see a wide range of clients of all ages (18+), genders and sexualities and clients with disabilities and/or neurodivergence.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
