About me

I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor offering brief and long term individual therapy for a wide range of issues in a safe and professional counselling practice. I am also a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist with additional training in creative therapies.

My approach integrates a variety of theoretical approaches to best suit the needs of the client, bringing together all aspects of the human experience in order to effect positive change and address issues in the past and present.

Issues worked with include anxiety, stress, depression, addiction, trauma, abuse, bereavement and loss, identity, confidence and self esteem, relationship issues, childhood issues, sexuality and gender identity.

I have experience providing counselling in Higher Education institutions, Further Education, substance misuse and LGBTQ+ charities, Occupational Health, and private practice.

Please contact me for further information.

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.
