Counselling with me
I believe in the healing and transformative power of counselling and want to provide a sanctuary for any who might benefit from it. I frequently work with depression, anxiety, stress and other common mental health issues, as well as empowering people to learn more about themselves. I can help with relationship difficulties, bullying, anger management, loneliness and abuse.
I have experience in exploring topics of identity, including but not limited to self-esteem, self-image, spirituality and faith, sexuality and gender. Through my work with young people and my own experiences, I can also help with issues of particular relevance to today's world, including responses to social media and gaming. Please see the list of bullet points below for more areas I work in, or get in touch if you have any questions.
You are the expert. My role as counsellor is to help light the way as we help you to connect with the best version of yourself.
How I work
I believe in shaping counselling relationships unique to each client and their needs. Every person is unique, and only by acknowledging our differences can we truly bring our vision of others into sharp focus.
I work to a high professional standard but believe therapy needn't be intimidating. Learning more about ourselves and making positive steps can be rewarding and I aim to make counselling something to be proud of.
As an integrative counsellor I work with several approaches to create a counselling experience suited to my clients and their needs. This includes both a person-centred approach, looking at where you stand in the here and now, as well as a psychodynamic approach, exploring your history and relationships to discover your unconscious.
By being seen and heard in a safe environment, we can open the door for you to embrace your inner self and to show it to the world.

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.
