About me

I am a therapist who is passionate in supporting individuals to find their freedom and live the lives they deserve.

Would you like to find relief from anxiety, stress or trauma? Do you want to improve a relationship or change a destructive pattern? Would you like the opportunity to process a loss or unexpected change?

If you can say yes to any of the above, I’m here to help and you’re not alone. There is every opportunity to experience change, find relief and feel good. I specialise in anxiety and stress, past and present trauma, relationship difficulties, life transitions, building self-esteem and processing loss.

I currently work online and if you’re ready for change, I’m ready when you are. Contact me today and let’s make a start.

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.
