About me

Coming to counselling is often the first step in your journey for positive change. There are different ways we can approach sessions; from different approaches to therapy and finding a way that is right for you.

Everyone is different and therefore, with my pluralistic approach, we can explore different ways that are right by you, guided by how you are each session.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified counsellor (Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling Practice and Diploma in Counselling Skills and Theory, Dip CST.), which means I am an accredited member of The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society and registered with the Professional Standards Authority. This means I keep my practice up-to-date with guidelines, best practice and professional development whilst always working under the Code of Ethics.
