As an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist I bring a compassionate and sensitive approach to our work together. I will offer you warmth and understanding as well as trusting in the transformative effects of feeling heard and valued by someone who cares.
Counselling can give you a safe place to share your problems. You will be able to talk in confidence about concerns that may feel confusing or overwhelming, and which may be preventing you from fully enjoying life. It can give you an opportunity to find answers and solutions, and give meaning to your experience.
Areas I work in include relationship issues, bereavement and loss, depression and anxiety, anger, feeling stuck, abusive relationships, Alzheimer's Disease and existential questions.
I am trained in online counselling, working outdoors, Wild Therapy and also offer face-to-face sessions following Covid safety guidelines. I have additional training in shamanic therapy, the creative arts, visualisation and bodywork. I am influenced by the ideas of Jung and my foundation training is in the Person-Centred Approach.
Please get in touch to book an initial session.

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.
