About me

My service is for anyone aged 5-25 who would benefit from a safe, confidential space to express their feelings.  However, I am able to work with older adults too, particularly if you have emotional difficulties that you feel may be stemming from childhood or young adulthood, or childhood trauma that you may wish to release.  I offer online or face-to-face sessions.

I am an integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor, which means that I draw from a wide base of therapeutic approaches, specifically tailored to the young person in front of me.  I draw from traditional talking therapy, play and arts based therapies, solution-focused, cognitive-behavioural and positive therapies.  I also work as a coach, if you wish to work in a goal-orientated, solution focused manner, within a supportive and empowering environment.  I believe that the relationship between the counsellor and the client is the key to therapeutic change, and that there is an innate human desire for growth within each of us.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
