About me

I am a person centred therapist accredited by the BACP. I work with both adults and children and tailor sessions to your individual needs. I provide 1:1 sessions in my relaxing therapy room and can do sessions face to face, online or on the telephone. 

I believe that you as the individual are the expert and I can guide you to help find clarification on a range of issues from bereavement, depression, anxiety or just help you when you are feeling lost or need some emotional support.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a degree in Applied Psychology and a Diploma in Therapeutic Person Centred Counselling. I also hold the National SENCo qualification and have worked with both children and adults therapeutically for a number of years to support them with a wide variety of issues. 

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.
