About me

I support clients on a range of issues but not limited to anxiety, bereavement depression, low self-esteem, relationships and stress. The relationship is the centre of my work, I use my therapeutic knowledge and adapt my approach to suit the person I am working with.

I offer counselling and psychotherapy for individuals 18+ to help them recognise unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that negatively impact their life and the quality of their relationships.

As a Registered BACP therapist I offer you the space to talk in a confidential relaxed atmosphere to help you make the changes you desire.

If you want to gain insight to your thoughts and feelings, talk about your worries to lift a burden or find different ways of thinking then therapy may be for you. Clients I have worked with have enjoyed the experience and been able to find a better balance to life.

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.
