If you're on this website, chances are that you or someone you love dearly is having a difficult time. Choosing a counsellor can be daunting, especially when we feel uncertain or hopeless. I'd like to encourage you to get in touch without any obligation to contract to work together. But first, here are some things about me you might want to know:
I have experience working with clients aged 13-80 years, with adult couples and with families. In addition to my private practice, I work as a school counsellor two days a week.
I am an integrative counsellor, which means that I can use a variety of approaches and theories, depending on how you would prefer to work together. Most of all, though, all of my work is rooted in my firm belief that all people have inherent worth and deserve to be loved.
Many people who come to counselling think of themselves or their lives as broken or unmanageable in some vital way. Together, I'd like to explore the idea that all behaviour and emotions exist for a purpose. I believe that beginning to understand actions and reactions as natural responses to events in our lives helps to set us free from seeing ourselves as flawed and moves us towards practising self-compassion, regardless of what life brings.

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.
