About me

Life can feel really tough - especially at the moment. Dealing with anxiety, grief, loss and work stress are always hard.  Dealing with them in a pandemic which has impacted all our lives is even harder.

How can I help?  I can give you a safe space to explore your feelings.  A confidential space to talk about how you are coping.  Together we can work on ways to help you manage your feelings and live your life.

I can give you a non-judgemental environment to work through your feelings and make positive changes.

I became a counsellor after counselling helped me. I have spent thirty years working in high-pressure roles in the City of London, balancing that with being a mum. A major bereavement led me to re-evaluate what was important in my life.

Member organisations


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.
