About me

*During this time, I am offering therapy sessions online or by phone until face to face appointments can resume.

Welcome to my profile page. If you are struggling I am here to help you explore your difficulties by enabling you to gain an understanding of how you have been affected and look with you at how you can start to address these and move forward.

As a qualified and experienced practitioner, I want to support you on your path to recovery and help you to gain back your confidence, self-esteem and enjoy your life again. It takes a lot of courage to seek help and you have made the first step. I work with individuals and couples on a short term and on-going basis.

My aim is to provide you with a warm, safe, supportive and non-judgemental space to help you feel comfortable in talking about what has happened.  We can work together and explore your needs to help you gain a deeper understanding around the difficulties you are experiencing and feel more empowered in making choices around your life.


I am a qualified, accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have been in practice for over 14 years. Working as an Integrative Therapist means I draw on various forms of therapy to best meet your needs.

I have worked with the charities; Mind, Victim Support, Women’s Aid along with Bereavement services as well as working within the public and private sector. I have been in practice for over 14 years and alongside my private work I continue working in the private and charitable sector as a therapist and clinical supervisor.

I offer support in a number of areas, with a particular focus in trauma; including domestic and sexual violence and childhood abuse having worked in this field for over 14 years.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.

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.
