About me

How I work 

Currently I am only taking on new clients online, because I'll be moving to Suffolk in June 2024. Hence, I'll not be working with face2face clients from this date. 

I've been working online for 4 years and I find its just as beneficial as face2face. Our relationship is formed in just the same way and it can be very reassuring when we're in our familiar surroundings. 


We work together to focus on building a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship, one that aims to give you a stable foundation to explore what's been happening to you and in yourself in relationships. By understanding ourselves more, our self confidence and esteem increase, which reduces anxiety and self-doubt. We begin to like ourselves more.

It's not easy but with 5 years + experience, I'll facilitate and support you by giving insights and information to explain your symptoms and issues.

So, give me a call, we can chat and this can become the start to a better you.

Contacting me

I offer a free 30 minute Initial Consultation & Assessment.

This will be your opportunity to ask any questions, for example,  'how does counselling work?'  You get a chance to start to tell your story, get to know more about me and begin to get an idea of how we'll work together.

I use as the online video platform for sessions.

There is no obligation to continue.

You can call or message me on my mobile 07487827370 for immediate mental health support for issues such as anger, anxiety, depression, and difficult relationships.  I work with all ages with a specialism in young people.

I am a qualified, Accredited, registered counsellor and psychotherapist with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I adhere to their ethical framework, for good practice.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

My speciality is relationships, the ones we have with others and ourselves; how we can negatively view ourselves and then beat ourselves up without even realising we're doing it.

Family and relationships- the difficulties of 'fitting in', making/keeping friends and problems maintaining long term partnerships in both work and personal life.

Attachment trauma from childhood and the ensuing emotional fallout that was created; our anxiety and depressive roller coaster, or just numb and feeling very little or confused.

Shame and all its awful outcomes on the person both physical and mental effects.
