About me

Life can be a struggle at times, I am here if you need someone who will listen to you without judgement and give you a safe space to share your concerns. I am open, honest, calm, kind and believe it would be a privilege to be able to work with you at your most challenging time. I have worked with vulnerable adults, children, young people and families for over 20 years, and I feel that this experience has provided me with an insight into how determined, resilient and empowered people can be. Every person is unique, and I will work with you to understand your life journey and explore your self-awareness. 

I can offer counselling through a variety of mediums and together we can work to understand your challenges and agree what you want to achieve from counselling to make those important life changes.

I will work with you and support you in exploring the issues that are important to you. I will assist you in understanding your emotions and taking responsibility for your thoughts and actions. It allows you to uncover your motivations and abilities, find your own solutions, and break free from unhelpful patterns of behaviour. It is important for you to feel comfortable being open and transparent, exploring your emotions, and expressing yourself freely. I will offer empathy, authenticity, and unconditional positive regard, accepting you as you.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

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.

Wheelchair user access
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.

If you require accessible premises for us to meet, please let me know as I can access a venue that is fully accessible for us to be able to hold sessions at.
