About me

I work with clients to develop a more concrete sense-of-self with a focus on self-acceptance and restoring core values. Sometimes, our efforts to put others' needs before our own can backfire, leaving us feeling anxious, lost, undervalued and taken advantage of. Avoiding conflict, people pleasing, experiencing guilt, overthinking and feeling insecure in relationships are common issues that I help clients with on a daily basis. 

Crappy childhoods, bullying, divorce and abusive relationships can have devastating effects. If left unexplored, these effects can lead to a decline in self-worth and confidence, impacting our potential and quality of life. Trying to re-establish yourself after years of not feeling like the 'real you' is not easy to do on your own. If you want to get back in touch with who you really are, I'm here to help.

I know reaching out for therapy can be a daunting experience. We all have imperfections, insecurities, quirks and vulnerabilities, I welcome and invite them all. To help you decide if we’re a good fit, I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation so you can ask questions and give me brief details of your situation. I work in person and online.

"You don't excel by conforming to society, you excel by conforming to your higher self". - Matshona Dhliwayo

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.
