About me

My priority is to meet you with a warm welcome and safe place that is completely confidential to talk about what you need, and create a personal bespoke plan of recovery and healing from the start.
The approach I use allows you to enter into a journey of self-discovery enabling you to feel better and work through the difficulties, using tools such as EMDR (in the case of trauma) and a combination of your experience and wellbeing resources such as self-compassion, and mindfulness together we can help restore a sense of wellness motivation, clarity, direction and resolve.

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

My specialist area of interest are childhood experiences that affect us as adults.   We can often trace a direct line from childhood to the problems that we face as adults and find ourselves wondering how we can change to live a better life and have more fulfilling relationships.                                                                               By reparenting our inner child and understanding our model of love and the environment that we grew up in, we can begin to understand what it is we needed and how we can learn to be a better parent to ourselves and therefor change our destiny and find freedom.
