About me

The pandemic has changed all of our lives demonstrably, both in how we need to operate and in how we react to everyday events. Anxiety in response to the unknown and stress (due to work, difficult relationships and financial pressures) are both very normal reactions in this heightened state. Many people are reporting higher levels of alcohol consumption. The list of additional worries many people are facing goes on and on.

Are you currently struggling to cope and/or in need of assistance to help you get through a difficult situation? Perhaps you feel you need to identify and/or make a change to your current circumstances to improve your life or just feel happier/more comfortable in your own skin? You may be feeling quite stuck and feel you could use a safe space to explore a long-term issue or talk through a more recent situation and identify possible options/solutions going forward? Many of these scenarios can severely affect you and directly interfere with your quality of life, your decision making abilities and ultimately, your happiness. Counselling can help!

Congratulations. You have already made the most difficult decision - to seek help and support.  Why not book an initial consultation appointment (at a reduced rate of £25) to discuss your situation in more detail before you decide if counselling is for you?

I have 19+ years experience in a variety of settings (agency, volunteer and private practice), working with individuals as well as running groups. I offer a warm, collaborative, nonjudgmental and supportive counselling service in a safe, confidential setting using a variety of models, including person-centred Counselling and Cognitive Behavourial Therapy (CBT).

I have a wide range of experience working with clients who have struggled with addictions (drugs/alcohol/food/gambling etc), anxiety, depression, relationship issues, domestic violence, adoption, intimacy issues, workplace stress, phobias, work/life balance, eating disorders, self-harm, bereavement, self-destruction as well as more general issues of low self-esteem and lack of confidence.

Short or long-term counselling options are available to help you meet YOUR goals in therapy. I offer an initial consultation at a reduced fee which will allow you to discuss what you hope to achieve in therapy. Together, we will determine the best way to reach your objectives and this will be adapted, as necessary, throughout our therapeutic relationship.

Please feel free to contact me regarding any queries you have regarding the counselling process prior to making a consultation appointment.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
