What I offer
My experience enables me to offer counselling and therapeutic care. I am here to listen and understand client issues ranging from depression, anxiety, domestic violence, illnesses, addiction, divorce/separation, stress, abuse, bereavement, and provide a neutral ground to individuals, families, and couples.
My focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. I hope to achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and offering unbiased reflections on your situation. Accessing counselling is a big step; I pride myself on being inclusive of all people ,therefore no matter what your personal situation is, I aim to help you the best way I can.
My client promise
I aim to be there for you throughout your counselling journey. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.
Depression & anxiety
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counselling, I can offer to help you recover motivation, perspective, and the joy that you deserve.
Trauma, PTSD and bereavement
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
Relationship counselling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both you and your partner and is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
