About me

Are you feeling lost, overwhelmed, stressed, anxious or struggling with issues impacting your mental health? Do you need someone impartial to speak to, gain clarity and support? I can help. 

What is counselling?

Counselling is a talking or creative therapy that involves a trained therapist supporting you in finding ways to deal with emotional issues.

Accessing counselling can feel strange and scary, but it is certainly the first step to accepting change, which is actually very brave. I am a down to earth person with a warm accepting nature. I hope to provide a safe space for you to come and explore your issues with no judgment, a space where you can be fully yourself without the pressures of those around you. In providing this space, I believe a you can fully grow, learn and work towards a more confident, fulfilled you. 

My promise

I will listen and I will hear you. I will support you in learning about yourself and your experiences. In todays fast paced world, it is rare we have the opportunity to feel heard, truly heard and understood, in amongst the pressures of life. I often hear the words, "Others have it worse" as a way of not allowing self to be impacted by the issues that hurt, because of other suffering in the world, let me say now that YOU MATTER, your issues and feelings are every single bit as important as everyone else's and I will support you with them.

Talking to someone and untangling thoughts and feelings can be a wonderful way of relieving tension, stress and anxiety so that we can clearly see the path towards solution.

If you think you might like to work together, please feel free to contact me for a free initial telephone call to talk about what you need.

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.

Accredited register membership
