About me

It takes courage to reach out and ask for support when you're feeling low. I offer a safe, non-judgemental space to reflect on your personal experiences, develop self-awareness and make the changes you are looking for to obtain a more fulfilling life.

Why Counselling?

We all experience times when life can be stressful and can feel overwhelming. Asking for support is not admitting you can't cope, it's looking for ways to help you cope, and seeking support outside of our family and friendship groups can be beneficial for many reasons. I will work with you in a compassionate way so you feel respected, listened to and understood throughout our time together, for as long as you feel is necessary.

As an integrative counsellor, I draw on different models to suit your individual needs, with my main theoretical approach being person-centered. This means I will walk alongside you on your journey, offering a confidential, trusting space, for you to flourish into the person you want to be.

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.

Key details

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.
