About me


I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor (MBACP) and a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200) with Yoga Alliance UK. I have been working with young people who have been disengaged from education due to emotional distress for over ten years in a mentoring and therapeutic capacity.

I am experienced in working with children, adolescents and adults with a range of issues including trauma, bereavement, anxiety, depression, self-harming, aggression, withdrawal, negative body image, low self-esteem, abuse, sexual abuse, domestic violence, parental divorce, neglect and relational difficulties.

I work on a one-to-one basis to help people who experience emotional difficulties in the context of a therapeutic relationship working with a number of modalities to deepen the therapeutic experience including puppetry, clay, paint, music, drama, sand tray and yoga to encourage self-awareness and healing.

In a safe and confidential space, I support clients to  work through psychological distress and trauma in order to fulfil their potential

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.
