About me

Deciding to see a counsellor and talk openly about yourself, can be a daunting and scary thought.

Our counselling sessions will provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental time, to enable you to listen to your own needs and develop a belief in your own sense of being. All at your own pace and in your own time. Therapy is tailored to your needs and will focus on helping to clarify and manage emotions and thoughts that may seem overwhelming to you.

In our first session, we will cover what brings you to counselling and discuss any hopes or expectations you may have. Our first meeting also gives you the opportunity to decide whether I am the right counsellor for you.


My first experience of counselling was as a client. I sought help from a therapist & can honestly say that counselling helped change my outlook on life and inner wellbeing.

My new found belief in the therapeutic process, motivated me to train as a counsellor, leaving my previous career & life choices behind. This learning showed me to have faith in that which exists within.


I am a Registered Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CBT), Person-centred and Psychodynamic counselling approaches. I offer a compassionate and relational psychological therapy service.

As my approach to counselling is relational, I believe that many of life’s issues arise from experiences of past significant relationships. The therapy I offer will create an understanding and accepting therapeutic relationship, enabling you to drop the mask and honestly explore your thoughts, feelings and patterns of behaviour, empowering you to move past life’s painful & challenging issues.

Think differently, feel differently, do differently.

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.

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.
