About me

I am a fully qualified professional Counsellor who has a range of experience from working with children and young people to adults ranging from 18-60+. I provide a safe environment where you can come and explore any issues or feelings you have, without the fear of being judged or told what to do. I believe we all have the tools to solve our own problems or at least find some acceptance around them; sometimes things are just too hazy and jumbled to see clearly.

In my own experience I have found that having the space to explore what is going on with another human being outside your personal life can work wonders. I am not saying I can 'fix' something that has happened in the past or tell you what to do in a certain situation. What I can do is hopefully provide you with some needed support and build a relationship based on trust and understanding allowing you to work through any problems you may be experiencing.

My training is Humanistic Integrative and I use person-centred, Gestalt, TA and CBT. I work with clients who have a range of issues from minor through to more complex issues. I feel that every client is different and therefore would tailor our sessions to best suit your needs.

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.
