I offer a safe, and comfortable space for clients to work through their difficult issues and find their answers to their problems, enabling them to make sense of their world.
My orientation started as Person Centred and have developed a more integrative style of working to suit the needs of clients. I have gained valuable experience working with both young people, adults and clients with complex needs.
In addition, I have experience working with clients from different ethnic backgrounds and feel working with diversity is an important part of the work. I have worked with clients who have presented with various difficulties such as bereavement, addictions, relationship problems, drugs and alcohol, panic attack, depression, self-harm, and abuse and general life difficulties.
As well as being a fully qualified counsellor I am also qualified as a Clinical Supervisor and have experience in supervising qualified counsellors, students and trainee Social Worker.
I am a member of BACP and work within their framework and boundaries of confidentiality. I deliver a professional service supporting clients to move forward and reach a happier place in their lives.

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.
