I am grateful for each and every opportunity I come across to work with individuals (both young and mature), couples, families and groups to facilitate learning and understanding of personal issues, relationship dynamics and other life situations to promote shift or change.
I have spent a great deal of time understanding my own personal history and in doing so I have learned that seeking help is a powerful step forward rather than an admittance of weakness. We all have an individual life story that at times we find difficult to manage, make sense of, change or accept. Feeling content with our lives can be difficult in an ever-changing demanding 21st Century life. I believe that by simple communication on a safe and confidential level we can feel hopeful to achieve our goals and build confidence and inner resourcefulness to see ourselves as ‘good enough’ people, parents, husbands, wives, lovers and friends.
My work has allowed me to experience a diverse range of people and presenting issues such as depression, anxiety, attachment, shame, loss, bereavement, addiction (drugs/sex/alcohol), identity (sexual/cultural/personal), erectile dysfunction, sexuality, abuse, pre & post natal depression, trauma, childhood trauma, dual heritage and migration in both long term and brief settings.
I create, develop and facilitate a variety of workshops and courses including anger management, self -development and emotional awareness workshops and courses and provide follow-up counselling sessions, advice, assessments where possible and have a proven track record of positive outcomes.

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.
