About me

When life gets complicated and difficult, it can feel like we're all alone and nobody understands or can help. But you're not alone in feeling like that, everyone struggles with life sometimes. I know what it’s like to struggle. I've been there. I understand. And I can help you understand, process, and work through the complex feelings that make life difficult. I’ve met many despairing, depressed, and anxious people who felt hopeless about life and the chances of it ever getting better. I’ve seen those people turn their lives around, in ways that felt almost miraculous. I’ve found that people have more strength and wisdom than they realize. Together, in a warm, non-judgmental, and very safe, confidential environment, we can help you to re-discover that same wisdom and strength in yourself.

I have extensive experience and understanding of how to help people improve, learn, grow, and become the person that they want to be, through my work as a counselor, lecturer, and author.

Above all else, the one thing I have learned is that life can get better. And just by making the decision to look for help, you've already started on the path towards a more fulfilled and happier life. I'd love to help you on that journey. Contact me to arrange a free 30-minute chat, to see if you feel you'd like to take the next step.  I look forward to meeting you.

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.
