About me

I’m a humanistic integrative counsellor. I believe that we all experience the world differently and, given the right conditions, we can empower ourselves by finding the answers within.

I support people struggling with issues like anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, bereavement, past trauma, trans-generational trauma and feelings of shame or low self-worth. I also have a particular interest in working with those who’ve suffered as a result of their historical boarding school experience.

Our therapeutic relationship will show you that you already possess the necessary inner resources. I will offer you the non-judgmental, empathic space you need to explore and process your feelings. I will listen to you with respect as we work collaboratively to seek your path ahead, at a pace that suits 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.
