About me

Counselling sessions are an excellent way of providing a safe place where you can give up , give in and take time out to focus on yourself. Learning to understand why you feel the way you do and how to change it is immensely rewarding and can be a great relief. Seeking counselling can be the first step to addressing behavioral and relationship patterns that cause you to feel dissatisfied and unhappy. You may have under the surface psychological and emotional wounding that is at the core of your difficulties in dealing with your job, relationships and yourself. Together we can work through the relationship issues, depression, anxiety or addictions that are affecting your quality of life. You can learn how to cope with and enjoy your life and feel good about yourself.

I also specialise in treating addiction.
Are you worried about your drinking or other substance use? Have you stopped drinking or using drugs and feel angry, hopeless, alone or misunderstood by those around you? Are you experiencing cravings and finding life boring or too difficult without it? I can help you look at whether you have a problem and how best to deal with it.

It is frightening to think you may have a problem with either alcohol, drugs, food, or relationships. Your life can feel like its spiralling out of control.

I can provide a safe place where you can give up trying to work it out alone.In my sessions you get to take time out just for you without the pressures of those around you. It will be confidential, non-judgmental and focused on working towards a solution that is right for YOU.

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.
