About me


How are YOU feeling?

Have things become too much for you just recently? Are you struggling to cope? Do you find yourself trapped in a loop of negative thinking? Maybe anxiety has become difficult to manage or you feel like you are crashing into a depression?

You’ll be pleased to know that it will pass. The way we engage with the world and our patterns of relating to one another can be changed which can make us happier and calmer. With my help you might find you can start to move into a new phase of your life. Free of the suffering, the negative patterns and any anxiety or depression that you think may be creeping up on you.

It has been proven that the relationship between the therapist and the client can greatly improve the awareness of the client's relationship with others outside of the therapy space. The work we can do together could change your life.

Things can get better and you have made the first step by thinking of counselling and I applaud you for that.

I offer Therapeutic counselling for lots of people. Some of the issues that I work with are stress, anxiety, depression, isolation, relationship problems, moving house, work issues and many more life problems that interrupt our ability to live a free and happy life. I work online via Skype or FaceTime or Zoom, and face to face. 

I also work with couples to help you resolve unconscious communication issues so that you can both get back to where you used to be.

I am also a yoga instructor. I integrate mindfulness into my work. 

I am supervised monthly and I work towards the BACP's code of ethics. You can find more information about them on BACP website.

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.
