About me

I am an experienced Humanistic Counsellor and offer a warm, empathic and supportive environment in which you can feel safe to explore the issues that bring you to counselling. I have experience of working with clients struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, bereavement or loss, low self-esteem and self-harming.

Counselling provides an opportunity to explore difficult feelings, consider changes you may want to make in your life or how to cope with things you cannot change, with someone to walk alongside you. This experience and process can enable you to feel more accepting of yourself as a person of worth, with the ability to make choices and find your way forward towards a happier and more fulfilling life.

Having completed CRUSE bereavement training, I work with CRUSE on a voluntary basis. As well as working with adults, I have experience of working with young people.

I offer short or long term counselling.

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.

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.
