About me

At times, life can be challenging or unpredictable and we might find ourselves unable to discuss our worries or concerns with those who are closest to us. When this happens it can be difficult to reach out and we may find ourselves feeling isolated and overwhelmed. As an experienced BACP registered counsellor I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to help you explore and understand yourself and your feelings.

I believe that every person is unique, worthy of acceptance and respect and this is the basis on which I practice. In our sessions, we will talk about any challenges that you may be facing and look at how these may be affecting your ability to lead a fulfilling life. I will walk alongside you in a collaborative exploration of ‘self’ bringing your attention to anything that needs to be healed, reassessed or let go of, helping you to increase your self-awareness and become mindful of any negative thought patterns, limiting beliefs or self-criticism.

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.

My practice is COVID safe but I also offer online sessions for those who cannot attend therapy face to face.
