About me

As an integrative counsellor and mindful practitioner I combine different models of counselling, tailored to suit my client's needs. At 23yrs, following 2 years national military service and 2 years of travelling, I began work as a volunteer person centred/ humanistic counsellor at Life Line international, South Africa, progressing further in 2003 as a CBT based (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) trauma counsellor, working with victims of violent crime, rape and domestic abuse. Around about the same time I began practising mindfulness and meditation. At 25yrs I completed my HND Fine Arts which marked the beginning of my journey as a professional artist. Over time I have integrated my skills and my passions into my counselling practice.

How I work.

I take time to listen to you and understand your situation. I offer a safe and confidential space  where you can spend time sharing past or present events without being judged, with someone to whom you are unattached. During our initial session we can discuss what you want from counselling and establish a collaborative arrangement that suits your needs. I offer short term (6 to 8 sessions), or longterm counselling. Counselling is sometimes tough, it can even feel frightening sharing your thoughts and feelings aloud, but working through difficult feelings can offer real clarity and relief, helping you to regain a sense of control and empowerment.

The easiest way to contact me is to send me an email or text with your contact details and I'll get back to as soon as I can.

I look forward to meeting you.

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.
