About me

I offer a confidential, safe, empathic, non judgemental space that encourages and allows you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in support of you developing a greater understanding of you, and to develop the confidence to come to your own resolve of any challenges that you may be facing.

I will help you “re-frame” your current perceptions through you developing a greater insight and understanding of your reactions at a pace to suit you. Enabling you to continue on your life's journey with a deeper sense of knowing and peace.​

I work from an integrative perception, which enables me to blend differing methodology, theory and approaches to bespoke an approach that best suits your individual needs.

I have a wealth of experience of challenges experienced throughout all stages of life, with specific interest in anxiety, self esteem, life transition and change, relationships and working with young people.

I maintain current DBS certification for working with vulnerable members of our community and hold memberships with

- The British Psychological Association (BPS)

- The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

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.
