About me

I am an experienced, warm and down-to-earth counsellor who is confident that counselling can help change lives for the better. I am professionally qualified with experience in supporting adults and young people with a wide range of issues. I am currently offering online sessions via Zoom which makes access very flexible.

Research to date has shown that the relationship between the counsellor and the client is the most important factor in counselling being effective, rather than any particular approach. This is why I aim to provide you with a safe, sincere and non-judgmental space to talk and the help you need to work out how to move forward in your life.

I offer a free 30 minute introductory session so that we can discuss what it is you want to work on and what you hope to achieve through counselling. It will give you the opportunity to see if you feel comfortable working with me and you can ask as many questions as you like about counselling and how it works.   

Please contact me via phone or email to arrange an appointment.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
