About me

Are you looking for support with challenges in your life? Your decision to look for a counsellor is a brave step.

How counselling can help

I can accompany you through life’s difficulties, and together we can help you achieve managing them yourself with more confidence, and making a positive difference to your life.

We will work together on addressing what you want to bring to the sessions. I can offer you weekly 50 minutes away from your life, to reflect on your life, in a calm and professional space. Sessions are built around a pace that's right for you.

I work with a Person Centred approach, with Humanistic influences. I am happy to discuss how this works in our first session.

My specialist knowledge is in, but not limited to, bereavement, loss and change.

I can help with a range of common life problems such as, depression and low mood, self esteem, relationships (family dynamics as well as partners), LGBT, stress and anxiety, and alcohol use.

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.


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.

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.
