About me

I believe that life can not always be perfect; mental health challenges and new life situations can happen at any time, leaving us in a state of uncertainty and turmoil as we struggle to manage and find balance. 

Do you have anxiety, depression, emotional issues, or are feeling lost? Perhaps you've gone through a painful and upsetting situation or are just not feeling yourself. I can work with you with these and other challenges; please know that there is a way forward, we can work together to help you feel better and begin to enjoy your life again.

I will accept you exactly as you are, I will not judge you based on what you say, and I will empathise with and endeavour to understand not only your circumstances but also your personal perspective based on your unique situation.

I am an integrative counsellor which means I tailor my approach to you as a person; I don't expect you to fit into my preconceived notions of what would be beneficial to you. Your sessions are for you and only you.

I can offer in-person, telephone or online counselling.

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

Wheelchair user access
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.
