About me

I am a qualified counsellor offering a safe and confidential space to explore what you are experiencing.  

Having somewhere we can talk about what has happened to us rather than thinking what is wrong with us can be incredibly powerful.

Counselling helped me through, what felt like at the time, overwhelming life changing experiences. Having someone walk that path with me allowed me the time and space to emerge much stronger. As a result I am passionate about creating conditions that promote healing in others. 

I offer short or long term counselling and will always be guided by what feels most appropriate for you.  

“When a person realizes he has been deeply heard, his eyes moisten. I think in some real sense he is weeping for joy. It is as though he were saying, "Thank God, somebody heard me. Someone knows what it's like to be me”― Carl R. Rogers

I trained as a Person Centred Counsellor and have many years of experience working with people in drug and alcohol addiction. Really hearing someone's story, without judgement can create powerful changes.

I'm grateful to some of my previous clients who allowed me to use these quotes about their experience of counselling:

"Its done what it said on the tin – someone has heard me and been willing to walk through this path with me." `LD


“The strength I felt from you enabled me to look inside my heart.  I felt you created a safe environment for me to share.” SJK


 "Therapy was life changing." MH

Member organisations

ACC

Association for Christian Counsellors

The Association of Christian Counsellors is a professional body representing and setting standards for Christian counselling and care in the UK.

The organisation is made up of various different membership categories, including Counsellor and Accredited, and requires all members working as counsellors to undertake Continuous Professional Development on a regular basis.

BACP

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.
