About me

I offer a safe, confidential space to talk through difficulties or issues using an integrative approach tailored to the needs of each individual or couple. I can help you work through issues such as stress, anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, depression, anger, addiction or self harm.  I can also help with relationship issues or family issues and I have a special interest in working with bereavement and those with eating disorders such as binge eating or bulimia – whatever the situation you will feel safe and supported and together we will find a way forward and achieve the changes in your life that you want or need to make

Taking that first step to contact a counsellor can be very frightening but you will find that talking it through with someone unbiased and who is prepared to listen unconditionally without making judgments can really help to make sense of your situation. Together we can explore whatever is troubling you and find ways to get back on track.

I am a qualified counsellor, hypnotherapist and bereavement support worker and adhere to a professional code of ethics (BACP).

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.
