About me

We can often feel overwhelmed by current or past life events, relationships or distressing thoughts and feelings. Sometimes we believe that we are never going to feel better and lose hope that change can happen. If we have experienced long term distress we might feel that we are 'broken' and 'unfixable'. I can work with you to process painful experiences, help you to connect more with yourself and others to improve your relationships and to get more of what you want from life. 

I am an Integrative therapist and this means that I can use different approaches depending on what you want from therapy. I integrate Psychodynamic, Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies. I have over 15 years experience providing therapy to work with issues such as anxiety, depression, grief, stress, relationships. I currently manage and supervise other counsellors and am director of a counselling service and community interest organisation.

Please call, text or email and we can discuss your needs and whether we feel that we can work together.

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.
