About me

I provide face-to-face and online counselling for adults and have been able to help people struggling with depression, anxiety, bereavement, low self-esteem, abuse and major life changes.

Following a brief phone call, our first session would include 30-minutes free of charge so we can both decide if we can work together well. I can usually refer you elsewhere if I feel unable to help.

I try my best to make therapy as comfortable and safe and possible and find an approach that works best for you as a unique individual. I combine talk therapy with simple coping techniques and try to help my clients understand why adversity can have such a profound impact on wellbeing. We will also agree on the specific aims of our work in therapy, centred on your individual needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Masters degree in Clinical Counselling from the University of Chester and I am a registered member of the BACP.  I began training in 2016 following a long career in the commercial world. I have worked with both private and NHS referred clients suffering from a wide variety of challenges.  I am an inclusive practitioner. 

As a member of the BACP, I work according to its code of conduct and ethical guidelines.

Member organisations


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.
