About me

  • I am Currently working a phased return to face to face work at FiveWays and online using Skype or Zoom.
  • I'm an experienced, fully qualified and warm therapist. I offer long and short term, one to one, counselling and psychotherapy.

My approach is person centred, I will respect your unique experience of life and between us we can explore your issues that are too difficult to manage alone, I will support you by listening empathically and being reflective of your experience to help you in expanding your awareness so that you can work through feelings that overwhelm and confuse you.  My aim is to provide you with an experience where your concerns can be explored in a sensitive, thoughtful, encouraging and imaginative way.

About me, my ethnic origin is white British however my immediate family are dual heritage, I am interested in intercultural life and the way in which participatory arts facilitate understanding of different cultures, I love drumming, dancing and singing and I am passionate about post traumatic growth.  As a client myself I found my way through challenging life difficulties which led to greater self-awareness and understanding.

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.
