About me

Hello and welcome. I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist with over 15 years experience offering long and short term work.    Areas I can help with are anger management, anxiety, depression, self esteem, spirituality, trauma, stress and bereavement.  Often we are drawn to talking therapy when we have repetitive patterns of behaviour that we can't shake off or we feel overwhelmed by events around us. 

I offer in person and via Zoom support working with individuals and couples.  We look at what you are wanting to create in your life and the blocks that can get in the way.

One of the most important and valuable aspects of this work is my relationship with you.  I offer an empathic, warm, non-judgemental and confidential space to create a trusting relationship that will provide a space in which you can feel accepted as you are and understood.   No one can change the past but looking at a situation in a different light can help us to move forward. We will also look at strategies to support you moving forward.

I draw on almost two decades of counselling and psychotherapy and I am fascinated by the connection of mind and body.  I have added Emotion Focussed Therapy, Access Consciousness, ThetaHealing®️ and Kundalini Yoga to my practice. I also draw on my own life experiences knowing that we can change the limiting beliefs that hold us back to live a life feeling more fulfilled.

I receive regular professional supervision which is an essential part of my work.

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)

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
