About me

I am a Gestalt-trained humanistic counsellor/psychotherapist and I work with both individuals and couples offering both short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy.
I work in a holistic way, believing that each person is a unique individual within their environment. I seek to provide a safe space for clients to explore their problems or relationships with the main aim that the client will discover more self-awareness. The Gestalt approach believes that with new awareness comes the possibility of new choices, and that this in turn will lead to client's finding new solutions or alternative ways of being.
The main objective of this approach is for the individual to become more aware of themselves taking into account their mind, body and spirit. The purpose of this is to improve the person's personal experiences and therefore create a better quality of life.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
