About me

As a BACP registered independent counsellor, I have worked for the last 15 years for counselling agencies with NHS referred clients and in private practice. I see adults (over 18) from a wide variety of backgrounds, for both short term and longer term work.

The help I offer is a calm space away from the pressures of day-to-day life, where you can talk about any concern you have, in complete confidentiality and without fear of judgement or rejection. My approach is "psychodynamic", which means that it is about making sense of your life in relation to your current experience and events in the past.

I am a bilingual French speaker, so am able to offer counselling in either English or French.

I adhere to the BACP's Code of Ethics and have professional indemnity insurance.
