The relationship between the you and your counsellor is key, but finding a counsellor can be challenging, especially when you may not be feeling your best.
Please contact me for an informal, initial discussion on how we might be able to work together, or for further options to help you.
I provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to allow my clients to bring whatever they want to explore and address: issues, challenges and feelings.
I have seen and experienced the benefits of empathic counselling and am motivated to help others access their innate ability to grow.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been working as a fully trained counsellor for many years, and beyond my extensive academic training, I have many hours of working with clients both long and short term on their individual journeys. We would establish what would be of most benefit to you in our initial discussion.
Being a fully qualified counsellor and member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) means I abide by their ethical framework, focusing on client benefit and safety, as well as my continual professional development and regular supervision to ensure I offer consistent excellence in my practice.
Building a relationship together with my clients is key, with it being based on trust and mutual respect, regardless of background. I have experience working across a range of ages, along with diversity in gender, sexuality, beliefs and cultural backgrounds.
Clients have come to me with a wide range of issues including:
Low mood, anxiety, depression, self esteem difficulties,trauma, loss and attachment styles, identity challenges, sexuality, gender, neurodiversity, men's issues, women’s issues, self-harm, suicidal ideation, eating disorders, relationship problems, family difficulties, parenting, bullying, workplace/career/corporate challenges, and control issues.

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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
