About me

Helping you to live a happier, healthier, more fulfilled life...

Are you feeling like you need some help with your anxiety, are some of your relationships causing you stress, you're not feeling yourself (or perhaps you don't know who you are anymore), you’ve lost your confidence, second guessing yourself, losing sleep, worrying over small things and finding it difficult to cope? 

Through counselling we can talk about how we can reduce your anxiety, what is the cause for why you feel the way you do, boost your confidence, learn how to manage difficult situations. have better relationships and reduce your stress levels. 

One of the most important aspects of counselling for me is building a confidential and trusted space where you feel you can be open, honest and valued.  I don’t believe that one size fits all and we tailor how we work together to suit you. So, if you need a non-judgmental space to talk and sort through your feelings or a more focussed approach for what you are experiencing we can work on this.

My therapy style is one where I don’t take myself too seriously. I like to think I bring some humour and offer a relaxed, down to earth and honest space. 

The key to successful therapy is how well you fit with your therapist and I’m passionate that therapy should be a positive experience. I offer a free no obligation 15-minute chat to see if I’m the right person for you.

I also have fortnightly appointments if you are unable to attend weekly. I hold phone, online or face to face 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.

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.
