About me

I am a qualified counsellor who offers a confidential, safe, and non-judgmental space for you to explore your feelings and emotions about any difficulties you are experiencing in your life. I understand that life can be difficult; we can all feel overwhelmed at times and in need of support. I am passionate about helping people and empowering them to grow and develop to their full potential. Whatever you are going through, I am here to help.

What to expect in counselling sessions

Counselling gives you the opportunity to talk about whatever is troubling you with someone who is not involved in your personal life. I will listen and support you, and I will not judge you or tell you how to lead your life. We will work at your pace and with the issues you would like to focus on. 

Counselling is a two way working relationship. You will have the opportunity to gain more insight about yourself, your situation, and the way you relate to others by exploring what is going on for you. I may offer interventions which could help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and I will encourage you to find your own answers. 

Everyone is unique, so I offer counselling which suits your needs. However we decide to work together, I will help you increase your awareness and support you in finding new ways of living so that your life feels more manageable.

I offer a free 20-minute phone call so that I can answer any questions you may have and decide if I am the right counsellor for you. If you would like to get in touch, you can text, call, or email me and I will respond within 24 hours.

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.

Accredited register membership
