About me

I am a fully qualified therapeutic counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Depression, stress, anxiety, they can make life hard to handle! I can help you to work through the things that are bringing you down. I specialise in offering therapeutic counselling, helping people of all ages identify, understand and work through issues that are causing distress, anxiety, and stress. You may be, feeling sad, experiencing panic attacks, grappling with relationship issues, a bereavement or trauma, or just simply finding the days difficult. I can offer you the space to work through your thoughts and help you to make the changes you want to see.

I offer both face-to-face and online sessions. Further information can be found at www.trulygoodtherapy.com

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.

Key details

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.
