About me

Are you feeling  overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, scared, confused, stuck and alone with all this? Do you want/need someone to talk to, to share your thoughts and feelings, in a confidential, safe, accepting space.  Someone that will really hear you and be happy to work with you to find some peace.  I  recognize those thoughts and feelings, and would like to help make your relationships and life better.

I work with the whole person and do not limit my approach to working with specified issues. We can start with one issue then move to another and another, and that's fine with me. I'll go with your flow. It's not for me to tell you how to live your life, but to share your reality and help you develop a deeper understanding and more effective way of being.

My job is to go with you on your journey. To be your companion,  as we navigate a way through to finding a more effective way of being, that works for you and your life.

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.
