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 only 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.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
