About me

Hello and welcome

I imagine that if you are reading this, you are facing some difficulties in your life at this present time.

I can offer you a safe place for you to talk about your thoughts and feelings.

If you have never experienced counselling or psychotherapy therapy, you may not be aware of the benefits and positive effects of sharing your issues with a trained counsellor.

My aim is to listen, support and help you to find the strength to make positive and lasting changes.

I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor, which means I adapt my style of working to meet the individual needs of my client.

I can offer you guidance and support in working through negative beliefs, problems and self-defeating behaviour.

  I work with integrity, empathy and compassion. My focus is to listen to your concerns and difficulties that you are currently experiencing in a safe and confidential space without judgement.

I know it takes courage to seek help and it's important to find the right therapist for you, I am aware that every individual comes with their unique complexities and histories, so I tailor my therapeutic knowledge and skills to your specific needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified therapist and as a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapy I am bound by the BACP's Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have experience in working with issues such as relationship issues, anxiety, depression, stress, addiction, trauma, loss, and low self-esteem

Alongside my private practice, I am also a volunteer trained bereavement counsellor with Cruse Bereavement UK.

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.
