About me

Sometimes life does not work out as we would hope, and although choosing to seek counselling can be daunting, it can also be life changing. I offer a warm, compassionate therapeutic space where you can explore the issues causing you concern. I will help you to gain a greater understanding of yourself and the difficulties you are facing, empowering you to move forward.

I am an integrative therapist which means I draw upon different therapeutic models when working with my clients. My roots are person-centred but I also use an understanding of Attachment styles, Transactional Analysis and CBT to explore past experiences and relationships which impact on the present. At the heart of my practice is a belief in the importance of the client-counsellor relationship and the ability of each individual to overcome their challenges, empowering you to live the life you want.

I work with adults and young people who are experiencing a wide range of issues. I am committed to helping my clients move towards their desired goals and believe passionately that the therapeutic relationship can help you to live a more fulfilled life.

Training, qualifications & experience


 I work with clients who are experiencing a wide range of difficulties including loss and bereavement, anxiety, depression, relationship issues and low self-esteem. I have particular experience of working with trauma and addiction, having worked and trained in a drug and alcohol service. I have many years' experience of working with young people, and in addition to private practice, I also work as a school counsellor.

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.

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.
