About me

A  few years ago my life was turned upside down in a minute and I realised I needed help, sitting outside the Counsellors room was my first step to a different future, I didn't realise it at the time, but talking through my life and what was going on for me, helped me see everything differently.

It made me go onto to study being a Counsellor and to give back for all the help I received. but I won't lie.  it was a big step to take and a lot of of thoughts, emotions and feelings to get through, but I feel I am a better me now.  A qualified Person Centred Therapist, which means that we work with YOU, in YOUR thoughts, feelings and emotions, we talk about YOU and hopefully make sense of how YOU'RE feeling.

Things that interests me are Anxiety and Depression, panic attacks and low mood.

We will build a relationship that works for both of us, with 50 minute sessions on a week to week basis, between us we will manage how many sessions you require, whether it is short or long term, that's something we can work together on.

You will be provided with a safe, non- judgemental place, in confidence (unless harm to self or others ) to discuss anything that you want.

I am a Member of the BACP which safeguards, both Client and Counsellor, I work to their code of Ethics.

If you require any further Specialist services then I can gladly refer you onto any relevant services.

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.
