I am a qualified professional experienced Counsellor / psychotherapist, working with Individuals with Low Self-Confidence, Low Self-Esteem, Anger management, Depression, Anxiety, Addiction problems and Couples with Relationship Issues, to name a few. I have been counselling for many years now and I have a passion for this outstanding subject and a commitment to my clients

I am a registered member and I work to bound to the Ethical Framework of Good Practice

As a counsellor / psychotherapist, I do not give advice but I will help you find what it is you are looking for and help you make sense of the difficulties and challenges of modern day life.

I provide a unique space in which you can share your innermost issues in an environment that is safe and supportive but above all confidential. I will offer support and an environment for you and your employees to fully explore their inner thoughts, issues and feelings at a pace that is comfortable only for you & them and I will facilitate their growth and be there with them on their journey of self-discovery.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
