I understand that life can be difficult, experiences leave us feeling overwhelmed and unable to move forward. From everyday stresses and anxieties to trauma and significant losses, we are all finding a way to cope. I also understand how powerful and important it is to find someone who listens and understands. The last few years have left many of us feeling isolated and disconnected. Counselling can be helpful during these tough times, helping us to understand the reasons that have led us to how we feel, and finding ways to overcome or manage these experiences.
I am an integrative counsellor and I have experience working with adults and young people, covering a wide range of issues such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, low self-esteem, low confidence, self-harm, stress, bullying, mental health, relationships, and more. Working as an integrative counsellor means I look at the client's concerns and needs, and work in a way that suits them best, integrating techniques to ensure they receive the right support.
I am an inclusive counsellor, which means I work with everyone, including clients that are neurodiverse, sexuality and gender diverse, and also from different racial backgrounds.
"Inclusion elevates all". - Elaine Hall
I offer counselling sessions via Zoom and telephone, where I am able to provide a safe, non-judgemental and supportive environment, that allows my clients to talk freely and express themselves. I offer my clients empathy, autonomy, authenticity and confidentiality and I am able to work with both long- and short-term counselling.
If you feel like counselling can help provide you with understanding and clarity, then please feel free to contact me.

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.
