About me

I am a fully qualified counsellor. I offer a supportive and confidential space to talk freely. I have previously worked with anxiety,  panic attacks, relationship issues, stress, depression, low self-esteem. I have worked alongside clients who felt stuck or who needed change and personal development. I work with adults and young people. I am also a teacher and have had lots of experience of working with young people. (I have often worked creatively with young people to enhance communication and to improve confidence)

I offer face to face, online, telephone and outdoor counselling-  whichever is best for 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.
