About me

****Free 20 minutes consultation****

I’m sure you tried to do it all on your own. You’ve been trying hard to get better and live a happy life. But it still feels like something is missing. You haven’t completely given up finding a solution. But feeling energised, loved, and living to the fullest feels like a remote possibility right now. Not living at your full potential means that many opportunities could pass you by. Imagine you were feeling at your best and you were taking up opportunities spontaneously, no longer feeling like you are missing out on life.

Therapy Can Help

You will get to know yourself better, work on issues that are challenging, and develop and grow as a person to reach your full potential. Counselling can help you feel more confident and in control of your emotions. By working through the challenges you are facing, you will feel happier, lighter, and regain your vitality.

It might be hard to imagine how you would feel if you dropped the heavy emotional baggage you are carrying. I have seen many times the effect a therapeutic relationship can have on someone’s life, so I would encourage you to work through this.

During my life, I had my share of grieving and challenges, and I remember times when it felt like there was very little hope. By working through those times and during my training years, I realised that IT IS POSSIBLE! It is possible not just to feel slightly better but to feel happy and content. It is possible to grow and develop as a person. My personal experience profoundly impacts my work as it allows me to relate to my clients and make a difference in their lives through therapy.

I have worked in the NHS providing short and medium-term support successfully helping people with a wide range of issues. I also have experience in providing long term trauma counselling, bereavement, end of life therapy, EAP helpline work, coaching and NLP. Overall I have over ten years of experience providing counselling and NLP.

In my 10+ years in the field, I have worked with people facing a wide range of issues, but I do my best work with people in need of individual counselling or dealing with sexual and domestic abuse, life limiting illness and bereavement.

I care deeply about all of my clients, and I strive to be genuine, attentive and empathetic. I have also undergone extensive training to allow me to translate that empathy into real change for my clients’ lives.

I am accredited by the UKCP and I am member of BACP. This means that I abide by their code of ethics.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.


UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. 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.
