About me

As an Integrative Counsellor, I have the privilege of helping to support many clients with a range of life issues. Whether these challenges are related to anxiety and depression, bereavement or prolonged grief, anger, personal relationships and abuse or the ongoing effects of historical difficulties, to name just a few, my goal is to ensure that you feel safe and heard in a confidential, empathic and compassionate environment. 

“No one can exist as an island”

It can be difficult to reach out and accept that you may benefit from external support. Accepting that this may be the case is your first step to making effective and lasting changes to your life and your relationship with the world and those around you.

Vulnerability is not weakness, it is the most courageous thing that we can show to others.

Working together, we will explore your challenges and discover new ways of moving forward with self-compassion and acceptance.

Drawing on a variety of therapeutic approaches, I will help you to explore both internal and external struggles in a way that will empower you and uncover your strengths. I offer face to face, telephone or online counselling to adults (18+)

If you would like to discuss anything further or ask any questions, please feel free to contact me for a free 10 minute consultation prior to booking any sessions.

I look forward to hearing from you and being able to help you to get the most out of our time together.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • MBACP in Counselling
  • Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • 6 years experience working with grief for CRUSE Bereavement Care
  • The Foundation for Infant Loss Training Course in Pregnancy and Infant Loss

  • LLB (Hons) in Law

My experience includes working with NHS clients with a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, anger management, low self esteem and relationship difficulties, in a compassionate and solution focused manner. In the voluntary sector I have spent many years working with the bereaved and consider it an honour to have done so. 

I am passionate about providing a safe space for my clients to share and explore their difficulties, both past and present, without judgment, and to ensure they achieve their goals - whatever they perceive them to be.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
