Welcome and thank you for taking the time to view my profile.
Are you currently struggling with anxiety, depression or low self-esteem? Do you ever feel stuck in your situation? Is your mental health being affected by the current pandemic? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then counselling can help. I am a qualified counsellor and trained life coach who can help you to make positive changes in your life. I provide a supportive, safe and non-judgemental space for you to explore any issues that you are currently experiencing.
I am passionate about all things to do with the self – self-care, self-esteem, self-love and many more aspects that focus on building on the relationship with the self. I believe that once we trust ourselves and create a safe place within ourselves, we are more capable of embracing the changes in our lives and we may find it easier to access our inner resources. Think about it, if you are encouraging, compassionate and supportive of yourself and you have trust in yourself, then it becomes much easier to do what you want to do and experience the world in a more positive light. I work in a way that promotes a healthy relationship with the self and I am able to tailor the sessions to each individual client.
If what you have read makes sense to you and you feel that you would like to book a session or if you want to know more about what I offer and if I can help you, please get in touch via email, phone or text.
Due to the current pandemic, I am only offering telephone sessions (phone call) at the moment which are £40 per session (1 hour). If you have lost your job or been place on furlough leave please let me know as I offer a reduced fee of £32 per session (1 hour)

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
