About me

I provide therapeutic counselling across all areas of concern. I offer face to face sessions as well as online and over the phone. I have a wealth of experience with adults and also work with couples, families and children.

I strongly believe that everyone should have the chance to live their best life which is why I practice Person Centred therapy. It works.

The counselling process can be daunting, especially uncovering painful feelings and experiences. I understand this and provide the safe, confidential space that you need and we will explore these together.

I genuinely care and I know that the relationship between Counsellor and client is vital. I offer a free, no obligation telephone consultation where you can have an informal chat with me before the first appointment.

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.
