About me

Life  can sometimes be a terrible struggle. We may put on a brave face and push down how we're truly feeling, but when we don't have an outlet for those feelings we internalise, our confusion and isolation can escalate. We may be experiencing stress, anxiety or depression, which hinders our ability to function as we'd like to.

The Next Step

It takes strength and courage to acknowledge these issues, and even more to ask for help....and there IS help! By seeking assistance you're already taking a significant step towards feeling better about yourself. I'm convinced that you're now using your innate ability to overcome what you're currently going through. I am pleased to be able to offer my services to help you in getting there. At your own pace, we can discuss and explore what you're experiencing. Here we gain insight and can begin to define solutions towards helping you achieve a more balanced and secure sense of self.

I understand that the prospect of having counselling can be daunting in itself. However, it's my job to ensure that you feel comfortable and safe during our time together.


Your initial appointment is FREE. Here I can gather more information, and you can ask any questions you may have. We can then both see whether we're a good fit. If you choose to, we can then arrange for further sessions. These sessions will be open ended, meaning it's up to you how many you have. Usually at least 6 weekly sessions is recommended. However, if you want more, less, weekly or bi-weekly, it's entirely up to you! I offer sessions in-person, online (via 'Zoom') and by telephone, whichever you prefer.

Training, qualifications & experience

I practice Person Centred Therapy and previously worked for 2 years within an agency that provides low cost counselling, both as a trainee and in a private capacity.

Before training to become a counsellor I lived for 15 years as part of an international community within rural Ethiopia.

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
