I have over 19 years’ experience working with people.
I'm a qualified psychotherapist and registered member of the BACP.
I am passionate about not only helping my clients to overcome presenting issues and difficulties, but I will work with you, at your own pace, using a blended therapy approach to suit your individual needs.
I work with people, on the here and now, addressing - anxiety, stress and depression that is making life feel overwhelming and exhausting, supporting general well-being and bringing moments of mindfulness into everyday life. Whilst, at the same time, working on deep routed mental health issues that are contributing to unhelpful repetitive negative thoughts, low levels of self-esteem, sleep issues and more.
For me, each of my clients are individuals and it's about getting the right balance for you - seeing what works and what doesn't work, promoting change together.

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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
The best thing to do is have a non committal - free consultation, so I can understand what you want to get from the sessions, I can explain how I and therapy works, you can ask me any questions that you might have, we can discuss confidentiality, and, if you are happy to proceed - next steps. This can be arranged via email or phone, which ever suits you best.
I look forward to hearing from you.
