About me

I understand that coming to therapy can be daunting so I focus on building a trusting therapeutic alliance with my clients to enable them to feel at ease sharing emotions or material that perhaps they have not been able to do before. I offer both short term and open ended therapy and have had experience working with clients with a range of presenting issues.

I offer a warm, non judgmental secure base and have a passion for supporting my clients to empower themselves to live life to their full potential. Through psychoanalysis and using empathy, I strive to support my clients to look at patterns of behaviour that may be holding them back.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am trained as a psychodynamic counsellor which is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. This gives me an in depth understanding of how our unconscious process can influence our current behaviours in the present. My modality allows me to support my clients gently to look at how past experiences and childhood can form who we are today.

Member organisations


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.
