About me

Finding the right therapist for you is important as the relationship between us will form the foundation of any work we do together.  I am a person centred counsellor and psychotherapist working from an embodied approach, offering a caring, non-judgemental and confidential service.  I believe that you are the expert in your own life and i will do my best to ensure you feel heard and supported as you explore whatever is troubling you and find your own way forward. You will always be at the centre of the work that we do together.

I create a space for us to explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences and together we can help you gain a better understanding and new perspectives for positive changes to occur.

I embrace diversity and welcome enquiries from all sections of society including those who experience themselves as a minority.

I offer 1-hour sessions, usually weekly, at the same time and place.  I work in a calm, bright, spacious room based in which offers free parking and 24-hour security. 

I am PVG registered and work with anyone aged 5+.

Email or text me and I usually respond within 24 hours.

I look forward to hearing from 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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
