About me

Do you feel it would be helpful to have a place to reflect on issues you are experiencing? 

I am a BACP registered integrative counsellor and my aim is to provide a warm, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings. I have a special interest and training in Transactional Analysis theory.

If you would like to consider talking through issues you are experiencing, I offer an initial twenty-minute chat by telephone or Zoom for us to introduce ourselves and decide if we would like to work together. I believe it is very important that there is a comfortable working relationship between client and counsellor. 

My counselling philosophy is that if we can understand why we feel a certain way, then we can start to think about whether and how we might like to make change. 
At any moment in time, life may throw us a curved ball. If you are feeling vulnerable, sad, anxious or confused, dealing with loss, abuse, self esteem issues, anger and shame, or anything else, then you may find talking in a therapeutic environment provides you with some support. 

I work in person, face-to-face, or online by Zoom, or by telephone. 
In addition to my private practice, I also hold a voluntary counselling position within the NHS.

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.
