About me

Welcome to my counselling profile.

I am an experienced and compassionate counsellor ready to support you through various challenges, including anxiety, depression, loneliness and low self-esteem. My approach is rooted in empathy, unconditional acceptance and experience, aiming to support you on your journey towards relief, coping strategies, and personal growth.

Client Testimonials:

Previous clients have shared their transformative experiences, expressing relief from past hurts, improved coping strategies, and feeling better about themselves. They became more confident in seeking what was important to them, fostering healthier relationships, and developing self-compassion.

Challenges I Can Help You Address:

Do you struggle with anxiety, depression, feelings of loneliness or low self-esteem?

  • Are you haunted by distressing thoughts, sleep problems, or worries about what may go wrong?
  • Do you feel almost constantly sad and tired?
  • Do you feel lonely even when you’re with other people?
  • Do you put others' needs and wishes ahead of yours, neglecting your own?

If you resonate with these challenges, I am here to help you navigate through them.

Imagine a Life Without These Challenges:

Consider a life where anxiety is tamed, and joy replaces depression. Where you experience the deep satisfaction of belonging to your loved ones. Where your growing self-esteem enables you to voice your needs, and pursue your dreams unapologetically.

I believe in your ability to overcome these challenges, and I am here to support you in finding your way out of the darkness.

My Personal Journey:

I understand these struggles firsthand, as I have faced and worked my way through similar difficulties. My own transformative experience as a counselling client inspired me to transition from teaching and care work to becoming a counsellor. Now, I am dedicated to assisting adults in overcoming challenges and creating more satisfying lives.

Your Path to Transformation:

Are you ready for a journey towards well-being and personal growth? I offer you my warmth, compassion, empathy, expertise and experience throughout our time together.

Your unique life matters too much to let anxiety, depression, feelings of loneliness and low self-esteem dictate its course.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

Further information

How I work as a counsellor

As a person-centred counsellor, I offer a space of safety and freedom,

  • where you can turn up just as you are (depressed, anxious, having unsettling memories, unhelpful habits, turbulent feelings or hardly any feelings) and be valued;
  • where you can explore, discover, understand and come to value yourself;
  • where you can become aware of and practice your personal power, your capacity to take charge of your life;
  • where you can judge for yourself what you like and don’t like, what you need and don’t need, what you want and don’t want;
  • where you can decide how you want to change;
  • where you can discover your inner strengths and external resources to change; and
  • where you can change in any way you choose to.
