About me

I'm a qualified therapist with 16 years experience in mental health.

I'm passionate about helping others. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space for clients to explore difficult feelings.  

My interest in counselling comes from my own life experience and passion for self-worth, personal growth and healthy relationships.

If you would like to know more or book a session please feel free to send me a brief email: talktherapyinfo@gmail.com

I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
