About me

I am an experienced counsellor and registered member of BACP.

I offer a safe, confidential and accepting space to explore and make sense of any difficulties or issues you may be experiencing. I work collaboratively with adults and young people (age 8+), in a way that is tailored to suit your preferences and needs. I can offer a range of therapies including talking, CBT, solution-focused and creative, and together we can look at ways to enable you to move forward in life.

I regularly work with adults and young people experiencing a wide variety of difficulties such as; anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement and loss, relationship or work-related issues, low self-esteem, addictions, anger management.

I have continued with professional development since qualifying, including applied suicide intervention skills, and coaching skills.

Member organisations


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.
