About me

As a counsellor my aim is to provide you with a safe place to talk about your inner feelings, with the knowledge that I will not judge you, or think your problem is insignificant.

During the talking therapy, I will listen to what you have to say and try to help you get in touch with your feelings and emotions and explore what is driving the reason you have come for counselling.

I offer an integrated approach to counselling as I believe that one size doesn't fit all. We are all individuals and deserve a unique approach that allows you, the client, to achieve your goal.

I am a caring, non judgemental person who is easy to talk to and have over 10 years experience working in the social care field and helping individuals to make changes in their life that are meaningful to them.

I have worked with people on issues that vary widely from anxiety, depression to addictions and abuse. I provide a private, welcoming environment and a trusting, therapeutic relationship to enable you to work through your difficulties. I will support you and work together with you to assist you to find a way to increase your self esteem and empower you to improve your ability to deal with difficulties in your life.

Member organisations


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.
