About me

Life can be challenging at times and can affect mental health, relationships and confidence. If you're finding things difficult, I'm here to listen. Working together, I can help you grow and discover better ways of being.

By providing you with empathy, compassion and acceptance, I can help you understand your thoughts and experiences better and so aid you in your personal growth and development. Counselling can give you:

  • more inner resources and more ability to cope with difficulties.
  • an improved relationship with yourself and others.
  • a greater understanding of your emotions and experiences.
  • a sense of relief through sharing a burden and being heard and understood.

Counselling isn't easy but the fact you're reading this shows that you want to change, and that maybe you'd like some help in doing that.

I you'd like a free 20 minute telephone consultation, get in touch via email or phone to arrange a time for a chat and we can go from there.

Getting in touch doesn't mean any commitment on your behalf and won't cost you a penny, and I offer the first session at half rate.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP).

I previously worked as a counsellor at the East London Out Project and was a volunteer for SAGE in New York City where I also studied Focusing-Oriented Therapy. My Focusing experience means I work in a mindful way, paying attention to what is being experienced in the body.

I have a positive difference in many people's lives who have come to me for help with issues including:

  • Stress and anxiety.
  • Feeling sad.
  • Depression.
  • Loneliness.
  • Relationship issues.
  • LGBTQ+ issues.
  • Gender issues.
  • Supporting the elderly.
  • Self-esteem.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
