As a qualified person-centred counsellor I offer to listen to and support you as you work through difficulties in your life. I am a very approachable and trustworthy person and I work to make sure that my clients feel comfortable and at ease in our sessions.
The focus in therapy is on the client, and on their understanding and insight of themselves. My goal is to listen and understand so that I can see the world through my clients' eyes.
My passion is to see people become more accepting of themselves and the way that they cope in difficulties. The space that I offer is 'unconditional' in the sense that I hold no expectations for how you might use it, only that you use it for you.
You can expect a safe, non-judgemental, and supportive environment in which personal growth can occur.
Counselling can be seen as a way to unlock your full potential. With this in mind, there is no issue too big or too small to work on in counselling if you feel like it is holding you back or causing you pain in your life.
If you wish to ask me any questions or to book a free 30-minute session, email me.
Please note that I may not always be available to answer calls - if you leave your name and number I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Training, qualifications & experience
MSc Counselling & Psychotherapy
COSCA Counselling Skills Certificate
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
You may not know exactly what or how you feel, and why. Don't worry if you can't find an item on this list that you identify with - I can work with you even if you're not sure what is going on for you. Your mental health matters regardless of whether you think your particular issues fit into a category or not.
£45 per 50 minute session
I offer a free 30-minute initial session for you to ask any questions you might have about counselling or the service I offer. This is not a counselling session as such, but rather a chance for you to get a feel for whether counselling is for you.
