About me

If you are looking for a counsellor, you might feel that you’re struggling to find a way to express your emotions. I can offer a non-judgmental, confidential space for you to explore anything that is distressing you. Whether you are struggling to deal with something difficult from your past or you are overwhelmed by emotions in the present, I can offer counselling sessions that are pressure-free and responsive to your needs.

I am an MSc-educated counsellor with experience working with a range of issues such as trauma, abuse, anxiety, relationship issues and many other concerns. I believe that every individual’s needs are unique and so I work to provide the best care for you according to my CORE philosophy:

C is for Celebratory. We work together to support you and a big part of that is taking time to celebrate the successes and the good moments. When you are making the effort to reach your full potential by taking the leap of coming to counselling, you deserve to take a moment to pat yourself on the back.

O is for Open. The counselling room is your space. This means that our work will be flexible to your needs and we will work creatively to get the best outcome for you.

R is for Relational. The most important part of counselling is building a strong relationship between you and me. This means taking time to value you for who you are and providing healthy, boundaried time for you to explore yourself within a caring relationship. 

E is for Equal. I strive to create a space that works for everyone no matter your age, gender, sexuality, race or disability status. I have both lived and professional experience of LGBTQ+ life and I welcome people from all backgrounds to feel safe in my practice. valued and respected.

Each of these values forms an important part of the work we can do. Together, we can allow you to unlock your full potential and live a happier life.

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I am a MSc-educated person-centred psychotherapist with a specialism in working with LGBTQ individuals, neurodivergent people and trauma survivors. I offer a safe space for everyone with a strong belief in providing an equal, understanding space for marginalised people. If you are looking for counselling sessions with a warm and gentle guiding presence, I am here to help you with your mental health journey.

We can explore things at a pressure-free and comfortable pace for you while encouraging you to live life to your full potential. I can help you to draw patterns between different elements of your life - your past and present, your thoughts and feelings, and your inner life and the world around you.

For people who are queer, neurodivergent or otherwise marginalised, my practice can offer a space free of assumptions, bias and stereotypes where your experience is truly valued and you are experienced in the fullness of who you are.

My practice offers a flexible and reflective look at your life and your mental health. Together, we can create the change you wish to see in your life.
