I've been working therapeutically with adults and children since 2008. I'm a qualified Person-Centred Therapist, registered with the BACP. Having therapy changed my life and allowed me to finally make friends with myself, but I remember how hard it was to reach out and ask for help!
Perhaps you're feeling anxious or vulnerable right now. Maybe you're not sure who you are or what you want; perhaps you feel stuck and don't know how to move forward. I can provide a warm, non-judgmental relationship that will enable you to feel safe enough to explore what's troubling you and help you not just to survive but to really thrive.
I specialise in working with people experiencing anxiety, low self-esteem and shame. Being person-centred means that I consider the relationship we build to be key. I'd really like to help you feel good about yourself. I aim to help you to feel seen, heard and understood, and I will offer a relationship based on warmth, acceptance and realness.
It would be my privilege to get to know you - your hopes, your dreams, your fears - and to offer you the support you need on your journey of recovering your balance, transforming and ultimately moving forward with your life in ways that are meaningful to you. Our work together could be short term or longer-term - whatever feels right for you.

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.
