About me

I am a registered counsellor with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and have my own private practice. I provide a Trauma Informed, Person Centred service and take a flexible approach integrating therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness and Compassion Focused Therapy depending on what may be most helpful in promoting recovery and healing.

I have a background working as a Mental Health Nurse with over Ten years experience working with people with a wide range of mental health difficulties. At the heart of my work and what makes it so worthwhile is the relationship I have with the people that I help.

Having sought help myself for depression and anxiety which I discovered through therapy had its roots in trauma I fully appreciate the courage that it takes to seek help when you may be at your most vulnerable. I also know from experience that it is possible to resolve what needs to be resolved.

I have learnt that at the source of many of our difficulties is a disconnection within ourselves. The good news is we can reconnect and when fully connected health and wellbeing will naturally follow. In essence, my job as a counsellor is to hold a space where people can connect compassionately to their feelings, emotions, desires and values enabling them to live a life authentically true to themselves.

If you feel drawn to counselling as something that may help you then please get in touch.

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 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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
