About me

In life we can often feel disconnected from ourselves and others, misunderstood, and that there is no space for us, let alone our voice. I work from a place of empathy and compassion, giving space for you and your voice, and helping you to feel more connected. This facilitates a deeper understanding of yourself, bringing clarity to why you do the things you do, and why you feel the way you feel. This builds greater autonomy in your life.

I offer a safe space and help guide you to find your own answers. I don’t label or diagnose, I’m not here to tell you what your issues are, I am here to help you explore, learn, and grow from your experiences. I do this by creating a confidential, empathetic, non-judgmental, and honest environment for us to work together towards your personal growth and healing. I am gender, sexual, and relationship diversity (GSRD) positive 

I work with 16yrs and over.

£60 per session is my standard rate. However, I know this is not realistic for everyone so I do offer a sliding scale. 

Please reach out for a free initial consultation or if you have any questions for me.

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.

Accredited register membership
