I am really passionate about the power of counselling to effect positive change. I have experienced this both as a client and as a therapist.
I offer therapy aimed at your own personal needs in a confidential and safe space, where we can work together in a non-judgemental and respectful way allowing you the time needed to explore your emotions and thoughts.
As a humanistic integrative counsellor with person-centred counselling at the core of my practice, I draw on a variety of approaches to enable you to deal with whatever issues you bring, supporting you in finding ways to restore and maintain psychological well-being.
I am qualified both as a counsellor and as a life coach. You are welcome to contact me for a free 30 minute non-therapeutic telephone consultation to get a better idea of how I can help and to ensure that you feel I’m the right therapist for you.

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.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
As we all continue to adjust our daily lives during the Covid-19 situation we are trying our best to cope.
You may be feeling anxious, struggling with the uncertainty of the future. You may find yourself working from home or dealing with the pressures of family life or even both.
You may have considered counselling in the past and now feel this is an opportunity to focus on yourself and personal development.
Counselling can provide some relief during this time while increasing your emotional resilience. I offer therapy in a confidential and safe space online and over the phone.
We can work together in a non-judgemental and respectful way allowing you the time needed to explore your emotions and thoughts.
