About me

I am a qualified counsellor/Psychotherapist working within the NHS. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am dedicated to working ethically within the BACP Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am a mature Person-Centred/Existential counsellor with many years experience in helping people who want to live a more fulfilling life. I work with a broad range of clients and issues, both within the NHS and in my small private practice.

I offer a confidential, non-discriminatory, non-judgemental service for people who are looking for change in their lives. My work is regularly supervised, which ensures I am working professionally, ethically and safely, providing the best service for my clients. In this environment we can feel empowerment to change negative issues in our lives. I attend regular work-shops to support my dedication to good practice.

I believe that taking some time to explore thoughts, feelings and emotions in a safe and trusting space, with a professional and experienced counsellor can lead to self-understanding. In this environment we can feel able to change the negative issues in our lives, and move forward.

Being a Person-Centred/Existential counsellor means I believe that we all have the potential to grow and flourish, given the right support and empathic understanding. I aim to help people find the key to unlock their potential and find the solutions they are searching for. This process takes place within the safety of the accepting therapeutic relationship.
