About me

Feeling anxious, lost and/or depressed? Finding it hard to choose one counsellor over another due to the sheer amount of options? Know that you are not alone. .....................................................................................................................................................................

I am a qualified, registered and accredited counsellor who works in an empathetic, respectful and professional way. I offer short and long term therapy, to individuals and couples, in a calm, confidential and safe location with free, nearby parking. I have experience of working with people presenting with a whole range of issues.

I have worked for a variety of counselling agencies including a bereavement service, a rape crisis centre, a large agency based in Northampton, a suicide prevention service and a relationship counselling provider.

I work in an integrative way due to feeling no one method will fit all. Therefore, I can alter my ways of working in order to best benefit you as an individual/couple.

If you decide to begin your journey with me, the first session (initial consultation) will involve a broad conversation surrounding what you may wish to bring to the room. Following this session, if you wish to work together, we may continue on a brave journey.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their framework for Good Practice.

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.

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.
