About me

I am a BACP registered person-centred counsellor who offers compassionate and non-judgemental counselling. My counselling experience includes working with parents struggling to understand their children's behaviour and mental health issues.  I also work with teenagers to help them make sense of stressful and sometimes overwhelming issues that they are trying to come to terms with.

I believe my role in the counselling process is to help you to make sense of and manage your anxiety, stress or low moods.  Part of my role is also to create a safe counselling space where you feel really listened to and valued.

If you wish to book an initial counselling session with me this does not mean you are obligated to attend further sessions. This initial session is a way of helping you get a feel for what counselling involves and most importantly help you decide if you can work with me.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I adhere to its ethical framework for good practice.

As well as offering private counselling sessions I also volunteer one day a week at a school where I offer counselling to students, parents and staff.

I have regular clinical supervision and continue with my own personal and professional development.

Qualifications and training:

  • CPCAB Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • CPCAB Certificate in Counselling Studies
  • CPCAB Certificate in Counselling Skills
  • Level 2 Safeguarding Training
  • Dealing with Distress: Working with Suicide and Self-harm
  • Working with Relational Trauma
  • Resilience: helping children and families develop an emotional shield - BACP Children, Young people and Families Conference

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.
