About me

I am an experienced therapist who can adapt to your needs to where you want to get to. By offering you compassion, acceptance and the opportunity to be listened to I can help you reach your full potential.

I have been working as a therapist for over ten years and have been able to experience with people the personal growth that they have developed though counselling and seen the changes that they have implemented in their lives.

Having a passion about counselling and loving the idea of supporting people through their journeys. I work in a humanist integrative approach, with the use of Person Centred, Gestalt, CBT and Solution Focused.


I provide both long term and short term counselling for individuals and couples and offer a free 30 minute, no obligation session where you can come and meet me, ask me questions or use it as a short counselling session to use as an opportunity to discover if you feel comfortable working with me and are able to build a therapeutic relationship with me which is important for counselling to take place. If after the 30 minutes, you are happy and would like to continue the counselling sessions, I will book you in for an assessment.

Training, qualifications & experience

Counselling Approach

​I am qualified and work in a Humanistic approach as I believe everyone is different and what works for one person may not work for another. Therefore I like to use skills from a Person Centred approach with the use of CBT skills, Solution Focused Therapy and Gestalt Therapy. I am a BACP Accredited Member and am an Accredited Registrant Member of the National Counselling Society and abide by both of ethical frameworks.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
