About me

Sometimes in this fast paced life we lose track of who we are and what we genuinely want for ourselves, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and stuck.  This often creates anxiety/depression, which then impacts on self-esteem and decision making.  In times of extreme stress its possible to dissociate which can be frightening and confusing.

In my practice I can offer you a space where you can begin to unpick and share aloud what is happening for you, even if your not sure.  Though it often doesn’t feel like it, I believe that each person is unique and has an innate ability towards healing and in my role as a counsellor I will endeavour to journey alongside you as you discover this for yourself.

I can offer a safe confidential space where I will carefully listen and help you explore what is happening for you.  I will use my counselling skills and training to help you reach your goals.  I am sensitive to how emotions and thoughts can be difficult and overwhelming and can support you through your process at a pace that is safe and feels right for you.

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.
