About me

I am an integrative counsellor registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I’m person centred trained and draw on Gestalt, CBT, TA and trauma informed approaches in my work.

I work with abortion, anger management, anxiety, autism, bereavement, depression, domestic abuse, emotional abuse, feeling sad, generalised anxiety disorder, individual parent and family issues/relationships, individual relationships, loneliness, loss, low self-confidence, low self-esteem, narcissism, OCD, panic attacks, phobias, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), rape and sexual abuse, redundancy, stress, trauma and work-related stress.

I recognise that it’s often very hard to take that first step and come to counselling. I aim to help you feel comfortable and at ease, offering you warmth and empathy to help you to explore your concerns and empower you to find a solution or a better way of dealing with them.

At your first session we will look at the issues you’re currently facing, what you hope to get from counselling and how we can work together.

I offer sessions face to face in a comfortable private room, online or on the telephone.  

I offer a initial free no-obligation telephone consultation.

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.
