About me

I am a fully qualified Person Centred Counsellor, offering you a safe and confidential space to explore, reflect and grapple with the issues that impact upon your life. I will work with you to enable you to find greater autonomy in facing life’s challenges. I strive to create a non-judgemental, honest and understanding environment that is ideal for positive personal development.

I know how unnerving or uncomfortable the idea of therapy can be especially if this is your first experience of personal counselling. I also know how transformative the counselling process can be. It might be difficult to make those first steps into personal counselling but I will work with you at your pace to ensure that you feel safe, supported and heard.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a professionally trained Person Centred Counsellor and graduated with a distinction grade. As a member of the BACP register (accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care), I abide by their ethical guidelines.

I work with a range of clients presenting with vastly different and unique issues. Some of my specific areas of study have been addiction, LGBT+ issues, suicide, shame, bereavement and compulsivity.
