About me

I am a fully qualified counsellor and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. Counselling will give you an opportunity to talk to a qualified professional within a safe, confidential and non judgmental environment. My role is to help you find your own solutions to your problems and where appropriate explore the connection these problems may have from past experiences. My training is integrative, this allows me to use different modalities and practical approaches to suit you.

How Long will sessions Last

Each session will last for 50 minutes and will be on a weekly basis. To begin with I recommend the minimum of 6-12 sessions. However, the amount of sessions will depend on you. Some individuals choose to have long term counselling allowing them to explore their issues further.


Confidentiality is maintained unless I am concerned for your safety or the safety of others.
