I began working as an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist in 2007, initially working for an agency and then in private practice. Over this time I have worked with a wide range of client issues including: stress, relationships, depression, anxiety, loss, anger, confidence and abuse.
Counselling offers you a private space to explore various aspects of your life, assisting you with difficulties and making changes in your life. My approach is integrative which enables me to draw on various theories tailoring the counselling to your individual needs. These include: person centred, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). I offer short and long term counselling.
Identifying whether counselling is for you and which type of counsellor is suitable can be a daunting and uncertain task, especially if you have never had counselling before. I therefore offer an initial meeting which gives us an opportunity to meet and identify if counselling is suitable for you. It is also an opportunity to answer any questions.
I am a Registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist and an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and therefore adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I also engage in a minimum of 30 hours’ Continued Professional Development annually. Courses I have taken include: domestic violence, suicide, working creatively, eating disorders, counselling couples, infant loss and counselling children and families.
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.
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.
