About me


Life doesn't always go the way we envisaged it to be. We encounter experiences such as relationships, work, loss, trauma, health-related and identity issues. All of which can create stress/anxiety, low mood and/or depression.

You don't have to experience these feelings alone!

My approach to life and therapy is Person-Centred, that the client is the central part of the therapeutic relationship, your thoughts and feelings are the focus. My approach is neither directive or self-opinionated, believing that everyone can be empowered, working together to facilitate insight, and to discover a way forward.

I provide a therapeutic safe space, whereby we can explore any issues you are experiencing, in a non-judgemental and confidential way. Working together, at a pace that suits you and your needs. That will enable you thorough reflection, a scope for change and understanding.

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.
