About me

When life’s problems become overwhelming, you may be feeling anxious or distraught. It can make a real difference prioritising your needs and talking to a counsellor who can listen to you with compassion and without judgement.

Life can feel challenging at times, stressful and full of uncertainty; are you struggling to cope with work or family life? Has life set you back? Or are you looking for some peace and calm in your life?

Whatever you are struggling with or want to focus on, then I am here to help you.

You might be feeling one or more of the following:

  • Stressed about your work life
  • Overwhelmed with family life
  • Trapped in a situation you’re not happy with
  • General feelings of anxiety or panic
  • Yearning for a more meaningful life
  • Fighting a chronic illness
  • Unhappy and hopeless following a breakup
  • Loss of a loved one
  • Bullied
  • Despondent
  • Miserable

I understand how demanding and difficult it is when fighting a chronic disease and what is it like to live or be part of someone’s life who has health challenges.

I can help support you in a safe and trusted space empowering you to explore your inner self and inner conflicts, allowing you to be a better version of yourself.

I offer a professional, supportive, confidential, and non-judgemental experience, allowing you to explore any issue you wish to bring to therapy. I am an approachable, open minded and down to earth person and I aim to make you feel safe, listened to, valued and understood so that you can build self-awareness, self-compassion and self-acceptance.

I am a qualified Integrative counsellor, which means I use a combination of approaches enabling me to offer you a tailored approach using a variety of methodologies to suit your needs and give you tools needed to cope now and in the future.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.
