What’s troubling you? What’s upsetting you? What’s making you sad, anxious angry, frightened or unheard? These feelings could be because of a range of issues such as addiction, anxiety, depression, relationships, work issues, loss and bereavement or simply a need to understand oneself better. Whatever is happening in your life I am here to help.
I am a qualified psychotherapist & counsellor and together we can start a journey of discovery to help you explore your issues in a safe and supportive space where you can be heard, understood and accepted; and through that discovery will hopefully come change and growth.
I work in an integrative way, drawing on various methods and techniques in a person centred, caring and supportive way. We may explore your past and how that informs how you feel and act today; look at current and past relationships, investigate losses and traumas that have affected you, identify thoughts or behaviours - in fact anything holding you back.
If you are experiencing emotional issues and problems in your life or with those around you; or if you need to understand yourself better, or you simply know inside that something is wrong, then my aim is to forge a deep working alliance with you built on trust, honesty and confidentiality, to foster enlightenment, change, growth and well-being.
Training, qualifications & experience
I work with private clients across a range of issues including anxiety and stress, addiction, workplace issues, family issues, bereavement and more.
I am also a voluntary counsellor and trustee of Bereft Bereavement Service as well as a voluntary counsellor at ASCA (Addiction Support and Care Agency).

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.
