I have been counselling since 2006; I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I was awarded a Foundation Degree in Humanistic Counselling based on Transactional Analysis by The University of Winchester.
I come from a background of working in the probation service with offenders and the caring services working with individuals with mental health issues, autism, learning disability and physical disability.
Having studied anthropology and social sciences at The University of Southampton I continue to have an interest in culture, difference and diversity.
Other specialist study interests include gender dysphoria and individuals identifying as non-binary.
I work within the BACP's ethical framework and attend regular clinical supervision.
My goal is to work with you to build a therapeutic relationship within which we can explore your thoughts and feelings. I provide a safe and welcoming environment offering a confidential, non-judgmental and empowering approach.

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.
