About me

As an Integrative Counsellor, I bring experience and a compassionate approach to my practice. I have a diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy and  I am registered with the BACP. I am dedicated to providing holistic and personalised mental health support to individuals seeking a path to healing and self-discovery.

Professional Background:

Since 2005 I have worked with people in a supportive capacity.  I have a diverse background that includes working in private practice, community education centres, educational settings and the NHS. My diverse roles has allowed me to  experience many challenges that people may face, it has also allowed me to develop a deep understanding of various therapeutic modalities, enabling me to tailor my approach to meet the unique needs of each client.


At the core of my practice is the belief in the integration of different therapeutic approaches. I understand that each individual is unique, and a one-size-fits-all approach may not be effective. Drawing from person centred, nature therapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT),  humanistic approaches, and mindfulness techniques, I create a customised therapeutic plan for each client.

Areas of Expertise:

I specialise in a wide range of mental health issues, including anxiety, stress, diagnosis, workplace bullying, depression, trauma, relationship difficulties, and life transitions.  I am particularly passionate about helping individuals navigate the complexities of their lives, empowering them to make positive changes and develop a deeper understanding of themselves.

Holistic Approach:

I recognise the interconnectedness of mental, emotional, and physical well-being, so I take a holistic approach to counselling. I encourage clients to explore the mind-body connection and integrate practices such as mindfulness, relaxation techniques, and stress management into their therapeutic journey.

Client-Centred Care:

I strive to be a warm and empathetic counsellor. I aim to create a safe and non-judgmental space where clients can explore their thoughts and emotions freely. I actively collaborate with clients, fostering a partnership that empowers them to take an active role in their own healing process.

Continued Professional Development:

Committed to staying abreast of the latest developments in the field, I regularly engage in ongoing professional development. I participate in workshops, attends conferences, and pursue additional certifications to enhance my knowledge and skills. I have regular supervision.

Get in Touch:

If you are seeking a supportive and integrative approach to counselling, I welcome you to get in touch. Taking the first step towards positive change is a courageous decision, and I am dedicated to helping individuals embark on a journey of self-discovery and growth.

I offer short-term and long-term counselling, and I am available in person and online or telephone. 

My office has parking and is also wheelchair accessible (lift)

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a diploma in counselling and psychotherapy and I am registered with the BACP. I am also a volunteer counsellor in the NHS and I have worked as a volunteer counsellor in further education. 

I also have a BA(Hons) in Psychology and Sociology. 

I have also been employed as a teacher, tutor and youth support worker.

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.

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.
