About me

In today's world it is easy to become overwhelmed and lose perspective trying to juggle the many demands upon our time and energy. It can sometimes feel embarrassing to admit that we are struggling to cope, for whatever reason. I offer a warm, accepting place in safe discreet surroundings where you can explore the issues which may be troubling you, enabling you to regain perspective and move forward into a more fulfilling life.

I work with clients of a wide range of ages from teenage to the elderly and have experience of working with people who are suffering from the effects of stress, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, bereavement as well as issues of low self-esteem, lack of confidence, relationship difficulties and school and workplace struggles. I can also support clients who are struggling with addictions or who need help with anger management issues.

I work in a person-centred way, drawing on elements of existential philosophy and cognitive behavioural therapy to offer my clients the therapy most suited to their needs. I am able to offer both short and long-term therapy. I am an experienced, fully qualified and insured counsellor and member of the BACP and as such am bound by their Code of Ethics.

I believe every individual has the power to be the best they can be - they just need to understand how to achieve that. Why not come along to meet me, let's see if we can work together.

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.
