Currently offering Specialist Online Therapeutic Support
I have over 20 years experience working as a Counsellor in numerous settings both face to face and online - and with a variety of issues such as loss, anxiety and relationship struggles. Whatever might be impacting you, you will be treated with warmth, respect and offered the time and space to explore your concerns.
I believe and it is often said that having a good relationship with your counsellor is important. This is crucial when you are looking for support, that you feel comfortable and that you can trust your counsellor.
We have to embrace a new way of working at the moment, and offering support online offers you the full benefits of therapeutic support from the comfort of your own environment.
For many people this is particularly helpful while you may be isolating or shielding. You may be experiencing anxiety, loneliness or depression due to to Covid19. You may have been directly or indirectly effected by a loss or bereavement.
I work with children, adolescents and adults in a capacity to help you feel empowered in yourself.
I am compassionate and will offer you a safe space to reflect and share your concerns, without being judged.

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.
