About me

Whether you're experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, work stress, anger issues, or if you just feel you need to talk to someone, getting in touch with a therapist is the first step.

I can offer you a safe and confidential space where you can talk about your concerns and together, we can work through them. I believe that with the help of a therapist, it is possible to understand yourself better, and to live a more fulfilled and meaningful life.

I am a qualified psychotherapist working for the NHS as well as in my own private practice.

Sessions are 50 minutes long, and occur on a weekly basis. I offer short term and long term therapy work.

If you're considering therapy, or if you have any questions, please contact me and I'll be happy to discuss them with you prior to your first appointment.

I am a registered member of the BACP and I adhere to their ethical framework.

Training, qualifications & experience

MA Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy

BSc (Hons) Psychology

I have experience of working with a wide range of issues including depression, sexual abuse, anxiety, eating disorders, relationship difficulties and low self-esteem, within the NHS and a number of counselling services.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
