About me

Even at less stressful times, powerful feelings like anxiety, grief, emptiness and anger can sometimes dominate our lives and wear us down.

Speaking with a non-judgemental counsellor, in a confidential, safe space, will help you to have more clarity, unlock your inner resources to cope with the challenges that you face, no matter how big or small you feel they are, to find solutions, and to regain equilibrium.

I offer 50 minutes counselling sessions (in person, on Zoom, or on the phone).

I am an integrative therapist, which means I’m trained in a wide range of counselling methodologies and carefully select those that I believe will work best for you. Over the years, I have been helping adults, young people and elderly clients facing challenges as diverse as anxiety, disability, interpersonal relationship issues, trauma, depression and bereavement.

Solving painful issues may feel daunting, but I believe with some help anyone can achieve this. My job satisfaction is to see people empowered to make meaningful changes in their lives and to grow personally and emotionally. If you feel you are ready, please contact me and we can set up a short introductory telephone session, to help you decide if I might be the right therapist for you. I will reply within 24 hours.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
