About me

I am a trained and registered counsellor and have experience working with clients whose lives are being affected by a wide range of concerns.  I aim to offer you a safe, caring and compassionate space to explore the issues that you bring and to reflect on your emotions and relationships with a fresh perspective.  

I offer support to adults facing a wide variety of challenges and will tailor my approach to you as a unique individual with a life and story entirely individual to you.  I will try to see your world as you see it.

I am a registered member of the BACP and work to their standards and code of ethics.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an FdA degree in integrative counselling from the University of Suffolk and am a registered member of the BACP so I work to their standards and code of ethics.  

I also have many years experience working with patients in the health care system, in acute hospitals, and working with local and national charities to support people in times of crisis.

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.
