About me

Passionate about helping people overcome life’s difficulties and make life feel more manageable to reach their true potential.

Sometimes life can feel overwhelming when fear and anxiety take over. Therapy can help to regain a sense of balance and build self-esteem thus changing your whole outlook on life. I firmly believe that therapy can help make sense of whatever is troubling you in order to gain peace of main and feel more comfortable in your own skin.

I offer one-to-one counselling on a short or long term basis as required. As a person-centred counsellor and psychotherapist I work alongside you, without judgement, to help you unpick your problems in a safe, confidential and ethical environment.  Working at your own pace we can find a way to overcome whatever is troubling you.

I work with adults, both men and women on a range of issues including - generalised anxiety disorder, depression, low self-esteem, divorce, betrayals and bereavement, as well as, the effects of living with an alcoholic, codependency and ADHD.

It takes great courage to make that first step to reach out for help and, having been in the other chair myself, I understand how hard this can be. Please do contact me either by telephone, text or email and we can have an initial chat or arrange a session together and take it from there.

The sessions will be 55-60 minutes in length at a time to suit us both.

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.
