About me

I wonder what you’re looking for in a counsellor? I imagine it might be someone who will really listen to you, who is caring and compassionate and will help you to find the way forward that is right for you. I aim to offer this to my clients. 

I will listen to you without judgement, to enable you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, and together we will build a trusting relationship.  

I will provide the space for you to explore your innermost self, and tailor my approach to suit you, looking for solutions to specific problems, and increasing your understanding of yourself and provide you with the tools you need to move forwards.

Having experienced grief and loss myself, I feel I have a powerful insight and understanding into the need for greater self compassion and care during times of struggle.  

My own experience of therapy has helped me to feel better equipped to cope with life’s challenges.  I would like to share this understanding with you and am empathic and thoughtful in my approach.

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.
