About me

I am one half of the team at Different Therapy; named because we are different - distinct, individual, diverse - and that is to be celebrated, as are the differences in every client. Difference is welcome here. I hope you enjoy reading my profile. It is so important for you to feel comfortable with your counsellor and I hope my page lets you see that I am down to earth, approachable and easy to talk to.  Counselling can be tough, I know that, but I hope as we begin to work together you will find the opportunity for some laughs along the way.

My passion for counselling developed several years ago when I benefited from the support of a counsellor as I struggled to make sense of childhood issues. Counselling can be life changing. Now I want to help you. People come to me because I am an LGBTQ+ ally and because of my experience working with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem,  childhood issues, identity challenges and family issues. 

I am a qualified registered member of BACP and NSC and am happy to answer any questions about my experience and my training. 

You are deserving of kindness, compassion and acceptance. I will offer you a safe place to share your story - a story that is unique to you, which is why your counselling journey reflect that. I will welcome every part of you without judgement and together we can explore issues that are sitting heavily with you. I will provide a space where your voice will be heard, where you will experience genuine interest in what is going on for you. I will travel with you on your journey. That will be an honour. 

I use a range of therapeutic approaches to work with you in a way that is most suited to your needs. The diverse needs of clients I have worked with has grown my expertise beyond what I ever imagined and I am confident you will benefit from my approach as it will always be focused on you.

I understand how difficult it is to take those first steps towards counselling. I will join you where you are now. I will listen, and with the warmth and compassion I offer, you will know you are safe while we explore whatever is troubling you.  

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an integrative counsellor offering a combined approach to psychotherapy using several approaches including CBT and Psychodynamic. Each client will benefit from the use of tailored counselling techniques and although I have completed my formal training, I continue to add to my knowledge and understanding because I want to offer you the positive, enriching experience you deserve in our therapeutic relationship.

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.
