About me

You know yourself best and you are already equipped to find the answers to your own questions. I can offer you a safe and confidential space for you to take time to think and talk about the aspects of your life which are troubling you. Everyone is different and your journey throughout our sessions together will be unique to you. I use counselling and listening skills in our sessions to help you reflect on the things that matter most to you and our time together is directed by you at your pace. 

Your sessions can be flexible and fit around any commitments that you have. I offer a range of day and evening times with a choice of face to face, online or telephone counselling. Talking, sharing and expressing what is happening for you can help you move forward, process, understand and learn about yourself. My role is to help you find your own answers, understanding ways forward with hope and optimism.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience working with adults and children navigating the following: Depression, anxiety,  trauma, alcohol and substance abuse, bereavement and loss, financial worries and pressures, additional needs and neurodiversity, gender and sexuality questions as well as relationship breakdowns, menopause and loneliness.  Although this covers a wide range of issues, no one is the same and what you bring to our sessions will be exceptional to you.  I look forward to meeting you and starting your journey together.

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.
