About me

Do personal relationships feel overwhelming? Are you feeling down because of family dynamics and family history? You are more than welcome here and I want to help you feel empowered in your relationships by first empowering you.

I believe that counselling is for everyone and that through a relational and empathic approach, I can help you to find healing, encouragement and hope by embracing who you are, your story, and your personal goals. I also have experience working with self-harm and I believe counselling can help in understanding these behaviours in a non-judgmental way as you move forward in your healing journey.

I use an approach to counselling called the Person-Centred method where a relational connection is the foundation of our work together. My goal in each session is for you to feel heard and that your experiences are valid as we work together to explore your story and find ways of helping you to move forward through greater self-understanding and self-love.

I have experience working with clients who are navigating some of these struggles and if you would like to learn more about my approach, I would invite you to take a look at my website. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Masters of Counselling from the University of Edinburgh and have worked with clients of various backgrounds and identities. Prior to becoming a counsellor, I worked as a support worker offering support services for those struggling with mental health concerns and addictions. My experience has provided me with the experience to assist those worried about loved ones struggling with addiction.

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.
