About me

Taking the first step of contacting a therapist can feel daunting, as many of the most positive choices we make in life can be. Through my experience working with clients from a broad range of backgrounds, I am on hand to answer any questions you may have plus share the life changing impact therapy can have with a confidential and non judgemental approach.

I believe therapy is an important element for self-growth and awareness, helping the individual empower themselves to make the choices that move their life forward. Through our sessions, I hope to ease any uncomfortable feelings and aid you in living to your full potential.

Through my years of experience, I have had the privilege of helping my clients process and unpack issues around mental illness, family trauma, addiction, grief and relationships.

I’m a fully qualified Person Centred Counsellor and member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy who endeavours to create an open safe space to communicate with clients. I hope to work together at your pace with care and compassion.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
