About me

About me

Are you looking for a friendly, 'down to earth' and approachable Spiritual Wellness Coach and Psychological  Counsellor?
Whatever issues you are struggling with at this moment I can offer you a warm, open, non judgemental space so that you can have time to reflect on your life, your choices and options. Life can be overwhelming and sometimes even exhausting, but I’m here to guide you through any obstacles you may face. My goal is to help you understand yourself more deeply and better cope with change.

I am an experienced Integrative Psychological Counsellor, Meditation & Mindfulness Teacher and Spiritual Wellness Coach as well as worked in a range of settings including a GP practice, I have worked with a great variety of people from a diverse background with a wide range of issues including:

  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Relationships
  • Heartbreak
  • Divorce
  • Low Self-esteem
  • Confidence Issues
  • Coping with Anger
  • Bereavement, Grief and Loss (including pet bereavement)
  • Trauma
  • Perinatal Depression (including antenatal and postnatal)
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Abuse
  • Bullying
  • Workplace Issues
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Traversing life-changing decisions such as divorce or career changes
  • Family Issues
  • Affairs

After extensive training in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling, as part of how I work, I listen closely to you and work side by side with you to understand your dilemmas, help shed more light on them, and explore creatively alternative approaches to them.

Adopting a holistic approach, using insights from various theories and looking at you as a whole, i.e mind body & soul, I can help you with the difficulties that are troubling you. We will discuss ways in which we can work together and tailor it to your specific needs. I work creatively, analytically and intuitively in exploring your challenges and sometimes that may involve laughter as well as tears.

I offer a safe space in which you can explore your concerns, focusing on what is important to you, without fear of judgement. I work in a warm and empathic way and am committed to being genuine and real with you. I believe that this is an important part of building a good therapeutic relationship.

I also feel the therapy I offer both equips, encourages and helps you to continue to grow and develop your understanding of your experience after therapy has finished.  Providing you with the tools to help you manage your life calmly and more positively.

It's important to find the right therapist and so I am happy to talk meet for an initial consultation so that you can decide if you'd like us to go ahead and work together. You can contact me via email.

Email is the quickest way to get hold of me.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you on your journey to recovery and enabling a happier 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.
