About me

It’s good to talk…right?  But it’s not always easy to.  If we are lucky we have someone in our life that we can express our inner most fears/worries and find solutions.  We may even be lucky enough to have that special person in our life who understands us and helps us make changes to smooth out the path of our lives.  The problem is we tend to compare how other people cope with problems and feel inadequate if they appear to be able to carry on through life seemingly undeterred by events while you struggle to come to terms with the disturbances of life.

Having someone to talk to who will understand and empathise, without judgment is the first step to help you understand your struggle and find within yourself ways to overcome the difficulties and challenges of life’s events.

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and a registered member of the BACP.  My training covered CBT, Person Centred and Psychodynamic; I use all 3 theories’ in my work focussing on the approach that best suits my client.  I can offer you a safe space to explore the unsettled parts of your life and support you in developing the ability to cope with the issues that causes you to struggle.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
