Are you finding life an exhausting struggle? Do you simply feel sad, anxious, stuck or unsure how you have drifted so far from the person you had hoped to become? I can help.
I understand the challenges caused by negative thinking and the motivations and triggers behind self-destructive behaviour due to my work within the NHS counselling those with anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, eating disorders and, particularly, alcohol and substance misuse issues. I've helped many people rebalance their life by enabling them to uncover the reasons for their actions and providing the tools to cope during difficult periods.
However, it’s not just my professional resume which allows me to bring positive change to people’s lives. The varied and often challenging times in my own personal journey are the foundations upon which my abilities as a therapist are built. Whilst it is essential as therapists that we understand how every person’s journey is different, experience has taught me that to walk alongside those coping with trauma, abuse or addiction, it helps enormously if you’ve overcome challenges yourself.
I work in a warm, supportive, and accepting way, helping you to unlock your own resources, find new meanings and identify solutions.

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.
