About me

I offer a creative and integrative approach, integrating humanist, cognitive and psycho-dynamic theories to explore individual needs. The process of therapy is client-led and is a essentially a relationship where we can explore your issues and unique personal landscape, integrating past, present and future, to reach greater understanding and develop insight, whether it is to increase self-awareness or fulfilment in life or to cope with any kind of difficulty or change in times of trauma such as divorce or bereavement.

Counselling can provide a non-judgemental and confidential space to be heard and reflect away from others or environments that may cloud your vision. Sometimes we can't see the wood for the trees and it is maybe too difficult or challenging  talking to friends, family members or colleagues. Counselling can be that supportive space and time to make sense of things and reflect on the issues of your life that are affecting you.

If you are think counselling might help you, you can email me or telephone for an introductory chat and we can arrange an initial appointment to look at how we can work together.

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.
