About me

Life can be challenging, sometimes it can feel really tough and leave us with a sense of helplessness and despair. Issues or problems in your life can trigger anxiety, for example being out of work, or working long hours that can lead to extreme fatigue. Maybe you are feeling under pressure to deliver what's expected of you. Perhaps you are having difficulties with relationships. It could be that you are simply feeling that something just isn't right. There are many issues that life can throw at us and these difficulties in life can be hard to manage.

Are you finding life difficult right now? I may be able to help.

I am a qualified and experienced integrative counsellor and can offer you professional help, whilst also providing a high quality service which is tailored to your individual needs. I will encourage you to talk openly without being judged, offering you a professional therapeutic space, that is safe to explore your concerns. As we build a trusting and open relationship where you will know that you have been heard and understood, we will work together towards a positive way forward, and help you find balance in your life.

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.
