About me

Why come to therapy?

It might seem like there is not that much wrong but something just doesn’t feel right, like a feeling of anxiety or depression.  It might be there is a specific issue that is causing you a problem. It might be that everything feels awful and hopeless. Often it can be that we experience relationship issues and feel that we are the problem or are worrying that we have an addiction that is out of control. Low self-esteem may seem to be limiting us in our life.

If something in our body doesn’t feel right we go to the doctor, or a chiropractor or a dentist.  When something doesn’t feel right in our heart, mind or soul then where do we go?  A therapist.  We are just two people, sitting down having a conversation and hopefully I’ll be able to guide you on your journey to meet yourself and make choices in your life.

What happens?

It’s different for each of us because we’re unique.  It will possibly be painful and scary at times.  It will possibly bring relief, connection and peace.  It will be worth the effort.  On a practical level, we’ll meet for 50 minutes, usually weekly, at an agreed time and see how it goes.  The first step is to get in touch for a chat.

Training, qualifications & experience

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

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.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified


I am currently taking on clients and have flexibility with appointment times including early morning sessions.
