About me

My intention as a therapist is to help you create meaningful change, including increasing self-compassion, self-confidence, achieving your personal goals and a greater sense of well-being. I strive to understand where you are at and where you would like to get to by supporting you to feel safe in embracing change.

I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your story. Perhaps you are intrigued in deprogramming previous patterns that you feel do not serve you? Creating a new foundation that starts internally and has a positive ripple effect on those close to you and around you.

Our nervous system can be overactive which can impact our thoughts, clarity, focus and sleep. I am passionate about mindfulness practices and offer tailored meditations to accompany your therapeutic journey.

I also offer life coaching sessions, working alongside you to address blocks and challenges preventing you from finding clarity and direction to your goals.

Therapy and coaching can support that leap of faith. We can work towards you feeling safe to expand beyond what you know. When you are ready you can call me on 07956570473 or if you prefer, you can email me. I offer free telephone consultations, a chance for you to see if we are the right fit for your journey ahead.

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-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.
