Do you feel stuck and find yourself repeating negative patterns? Perhaps there is a current situation or past experience that is challenging you. I am interested in helping others improve their wellbeing to live healthier and happier.
My role as a counsellor is being a companion on a person's journey of self-discovery in a calm environment and without judgement. I believe that by developing an increased awareness of self, leads to growth and a change in behaviour and outlook in the here and now.
I am a qualified integrative counsellor, meaning that I draw upon a number of different approaches and models which are most suitable for each individual, I am not fixed to one mode of working.
Previous clients have seen me to seek help with anxiety, bereavement, cultural issues, depression, identity, intrusive thoughts, panic attacks, relationship problems, self esteem, sexuality, sexual abuse, spirituality, stress, suicidal thoughts and work related issues.

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.
