About me

How can I help?

There are many reasons for considering counselling. Maybe you’re feeling lost or facing a personal crisis. Perhaps you’re struggling for purpose or meaning in your life? Or wanting to modify your behaviours or change destructive patterns. Therapy can support you as you explore your relationship with the world, helping you move from where you are now to where you want to be.

I work as a relational integrative therapist, using a range of psychological theories & techniques. Working this way I can understand your personal situation & needs better and tailor my therapeutic approach uniquely to you. I am passionate about personal growth, empowerment & self-compassion & the positive changes good therapy can bring to someone’s life.

I am warm, genuine & relationship driven and take an active role working alongside you. Building a strong and trusted relationship is key to us working collaboratively to explore the here and now, past relationships and desired changes for the future. Exploring your relationships and patterns of behaviour in this environment can lead to more fulfilling interactions and stronger connections, which lead to a happier and healthier life.

I’ve worked with adults from different backgrounds dealing with a wide range of issues and my practice is inclusive and welcoming to all. My aim as your counsellor, is to be compassionate, respectful and genuine; endeavouring to create the therapeutic conditions for you to achieve your goals for therapy.

Your relationship with your therapist will be unlike any other and it is important to spend time finding someone you feel comfortable with. I offer a free 20-minute telephone conversation to give you the opportunity to decide whether I am the right counsellor for you.

I offer both individual and couples counselling.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
