About me

I am an experienced Person-Centred counsellor and offer a safe space to reflect on and explore difficult issues. I believe that we have an ability to find our own solutions but may need another person to carefully listen and to offer back what we are feeling. In this way we can make sense of our ourselves and begin to move forward.

I work with individuals and couples and cover areas including depression, anxiety, loss, trauma, abuse and living with uncertainty.

I have a background working with chronic medical conditions. I also have experience working with perinatal trauma including difficult birth experiences, miscarriage, stillbirth, fertility issues and disability.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their ethical framework.

Getting started:

It can feel difficult to make that initial call. This is completely normal but feel free to simply leave a text or an email and I will get back to you quickly to discuss making an appointment.

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.
