About me

Coming to counselling can be a scary (and brave) step to take. It involves opening up to a complete stranger about things you may have kept inside for many years.

I have been working in counselling and mentoring roles since 2010. I have worked in a variety of settings including colleges, schools, with private companies and outreach projects. This has enabled me to assist clients on a practical level whilst also giving them the skills they need to move forward.

Prior to this I worked in marketing and PR with independent record labels and musicians.

The core of my training was in the psychodynamic method of counselling which involves looking at how past patterns of behaviour may be influencing our present behaviour.

It also looks at how some of the ways we connect with others is communicated subconsciously meaning we are not always aware of how we may be relating to other people. Think of it a little like an iceberg, while 10% is seen, much is under the surface. It is the part under the surface which is often determining which direction our lives take.

Where to begin?

To get started please feel free to give me a ring on the number above. We will discuss your reasons for wanting to come to counselling and arrange an initial assessment.

The initial assessment is more of a getting to know one another session where we can discuss your reasons for choosing therapy now in more detail and decide between us if we feel we can work together.

If you decide you would like to continue working together, we will agree a time each week to begin our weekly sessions.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
