People generally look for a counsellor because they feel stuck or unable to move forward from unhelpful thoughts and behaviour patterns. You could struggle to connect with others and maintain healthy relationships. You may also feel like you can’t keep up with the people around you; as though everyone is doing better than you are. Self-acceptance and self-love may be a problem if you are suffering from anxiety and depression. Do you want to move forward and build yourself a sustainable future? I draw on a range of theoretical concepts to provide an integrative approach. A focus on psychodynamic, relational and developmental theory enables me to strive for a safe and empathic place. Through my work I hope to aid my clients fulfil their unmet needs and subsequent difficulties and feelings that arise as a result. Alongside my private practice I have worked with an agency that specialises in domestic abuse and trauma. I regularly undertake CPD in order to enhance my skills. I also work within special needs education settings.
I aim to provide a safe space for clients to address whatever they may wish to work on, with no judgement and as much support as I can. to walk alongside with support and understanding.
Please leave a message or text should I be unable to answer the phone as I am usually working. I will get back to you as soon as possible.

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.
