About me

At times life may feel challenging, confusing or overwhelming, and at these times many people find it helpful to talk with a counsellor confidentially. My intention is to offer you a warm and trusting relationship, one that will enable you to express and discuss your thoughts and feelings, and to provide you with appropriate support.

I have experience of working with a wide range of issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship problems, bereavement, and other psychological and spiritual issues having worked with clients within the NHS, charities and privately, both one-to-one and in groups, in person and online.

Whatever leads you to considering counselling, please do get in touch, I would be very pleased to hear from you.

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.
