About me

I offer a safe and confidential space where you can be yourself and explore your feelings, emotions and experiences without being judged. It's not easy to take the step to get help and support with life's challenges however you're not alone. Counselling is a powerful experience that changes lives.

​Some of the problems that people bring to counselling can include:

  • Low-mood/ Depression
  • Feeling stuck or trapped
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Unhappy at work/ undervalued in your role
  • Addiction to alcohol/ drugs - you or someone close to you
  • Relationship issues
  • Bereavement
  • Abuse
  • Illness
  • Culture Shock

I work in an Integrative way, which includes CBT, Psychodynamic and Person Centred Counselling - all seamlessly working together to explore what's happened in your life, your relationships, where you are now and how and where you want to be in the future. You are the priority and you are what matters.

I work in person at the Hawarden Wellness Centre in a peaceful, relaxing and private room. I can also work with you on the phone or online through the use of Zoom if you prefer.

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.
