About me

I am an experienced counsellor registered with the BACP (British Association for the Counselling Professions) and I adhere to their ethical framework. Find out more about this at

I am warm, genuine, caring and compassionate person, who is passionate and dedicated to my work with clients.

Maybe you are facing depression or anxiety, bereavement or trauma, having relationship trouble, addictions or any other concerns. What counselling can do:
- offer us a space to explore issues
- help us making sense of our experiences
- gain insight into ourselves
- help us towards making the changes we would like to happen...

I work primarily from a person centre approach perspective, I offer integrative person centred counselling and will use other therapeutic models. Whether working on the here-and-now, or exploring our past relationships to find relief, CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) to help us tackle patterns and habits, mindfulness to help us feel calm and connected…

I have a creative approach and use arts therapeutically where appropriate. This is particularly well suited to young people but can be used at any age.

I hold full professional liability insurance, Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service clearance.
