I believe that through our relationships in life we develop who we are and how we relate to others, but there can be times in life when things can feel overwhelming, hopeless and bleak, when we lose sight of who we are. I believe that in these moments there is nothing more valuable than truly being with another.
Therapy is a joint process which we embark on together and I am committed to the relationship I form with clients. I am a Person Centred therapist and in our journey together I aim to provide a safe, respectful and non- judgemental environment where we can explore issues in your life which are important to you and help you find your own source of clarity and insight. I bring warmth, acceptance and creativity to our therapeutic relationship and I will support you in reconnecting with your own sense of being and understanding of who you are as a person.

Member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy. (MBACP). I subscribe to BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice and work in the strictest confidence.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
