** COVID-19: My therapy room has hand-washing facilities, allows for 2m social distancing in our chairs, is not used by other counsellors and is thoroughly cleaned between clients so that I can provide in-person counselling as safely as possible at this time. **
I am passionate about helping adults and older adults work with loss, self-esteem and relationship difficulties so that they can have a better, more fulfilling life.
You may be struggling with:
- Low Mood
- Poor Sleep
- Cancer or other illness/disability
- Not being able to get out of bed
- A lack of confidence
- Self-harming behaviour
- Drinking too much
- Eating too much or too little
- Stuck in an unhappy relationship
- Spending too much
- Suicidal feelings
- Feeling Lost
- Not knowing who you are
We are all unique and will each struggle in our own way from time to time. I am here to work collaboratively with you to help you overcome whatever it is you are going through and create the life you wish for.
I am a Relational Integrative therapist which means I work holistically with a variety of therapeutic techniques, holding our therapeutic relationship at the core, to best suit meeting your goals. It’s also ok for you to not have a goal, as this isn’t always clear to us or what we need. Therapy can sometimes be very challenging but I hope my warmth, empathy and compassion will help you feel safe and at ease.
I offer short, medium and long term therapy.
I have created a private, comfortable and relaxing therapy room with WC facilities, wheelchair accessibility and free parking, located 5 minutes from the M2, Junction 2.
How to get started... Give me a call or send me a text or email. I offer a FREE 30 minute introductory session so that you can assess if I am the right counsellor for you.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
