As a fully-qualified and experienced counsellor, I take a holistic approach to person-centred therapy. I believe firmly in the importance of building up a strong relationship with my clients in order to improve their self-esteem and empower them to make the necessary changes in their lives. Offering a non-judgemental and approachable listening ear, it’s my mission to help those who need it most, especially those who have already had a negative experience of counselling in a safe, welcoming and comfortable environment.
How do I Work?
I work with my clients in a person-centred way, with my clients setting the direction, agenda and purpose for their therapy. I believe it’s important to listen to each client carefully, taking on board their issues so that we can then work together on the best ways to overcome their problems. The types of therapy I use will be entirely geared to meet the needs of each client – there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to counselling.
It goes without saying that client confidentiality is of paramount importance to me, and I always adhere to the ethical code of practice outlined by the BACP, of which I am a member.
Which Counselling Areas Do I Offer?
I work with clients who are experiencing a broad spectrum of issues from depression and anxiety to addiction. I have worked extensively with addiction sufferers as well as with children, teenagers, young adults and those with learning disabilities, so I have extensive expertise across the spectrum of mental health disorders.
It’s my mission to make myself as available as I can to my clients. To this end, I can offer both video chat and telephone counselling to bring therapy within reach of as many people as who need it.

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.
