About me

Welcome to my page.  My aim is to provide you with a warm, safe, supportive space to help you feel comfortable in talking about what has happened.  We can work together to explore your needs and help you gain a deeper understanding around the difficulties you are experiencing and feel more empowered in making choices around your life.  I work with individuals and couples on a short term and on-going basis.  I offer support for many difficulties and specialise in working with individuals who have experienced trauma and anxiety.

Benefits of Counselling

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.

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.
