About me

With a passion for helping others, I am a counsellor who actively listens and guides people towards emotional healing.

As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I meet high standards of professionalism, ethics and continued professional development. I am highly qualified with PGDip in Counselling and my education enables me to assist people through life’s challenges and struggles.

My role as your counsellor is to help you develop the capacity for personal growth and change.  Responding to your needs I use a person-centred therapy and a solution focused approach to counselling, which is non-judgmental, empathetic, empowering and motivating to you as the individual to take back control and grow.

It is okay to take care of yourself and natural to want to live a happy, fulfilled and energised life. It takes tremendous strength to change and to live without anxiety, stress, depression, uncertainty and feeling overwhelmed by life.

In counselling, you talk, and I will patiently listen with compassion. We will explore what is causing your problems and talk about new strategies to overcome them. Your energy will grow, and anxiety and depression will shrink.

My clients tell me I am warm, friendly and helpful. If I sound like the sort of person you could see yourself talking to, then please do not hesitate to contact me today on 07879 475216 or email me.

I look forward to hearing from you

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.
