About me

Are you feeling anxious or depressed? Is the Covid-19 pandemic worrying you?

Modern day life can be hard - school or work pressures, relationship difficulties, feelings of low confidence or self esteem, painful memories or trauma, difficulty sleeping. Experiencing these type of difficult life events can leave us feeling overwhelmed, anxious, upset or that we can't cope with things.

These are normal feelings and it helps to talk about them. I can help you.

I work with young people and adults and have experience working in a wide range of therapeutic settings; universities, schools, local charities and in private practice.

My specialisms are supporting people who are experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, emotional abuse, low self-esteem, school/exam pressures, self-harm, suicidal ideation, body image, sexuality and identity issues.

I am currently working via Zoom, Skype or telephone and have available appointments. Give me a call today on 07787125534 for a free confidential consultation and we can discuss how I can best support you.

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.

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.
