About me

I have experience of working with trauma, depression, anxiety, and PTSD. I've worked with survivors of sexual violence, domestic violence, bullying, and abuse. I have also worked with people who have struggled to get out of bed in the morning and haven't been sure why. I offer a kind, caring, compassionate counselling service, free from judgement and agenda. It's your space.

This just means that in all things, I will be guided by you, the client, and we can talk about anything you wish, with no agenda on my part. It also means that I understand that a person may have conflicting feelings within themselves – perhaps you may have said something like, “Part of me feels sad about this event, but another part of me feels a little pleased” – I can explore these different parts with you and help you to understand yourself and how all the things in your life have affected you.

Making the first contact can feel overwhelming – maybe a little frightening. I try to make the process as easy as I can - I am available for first contact via email, telephone, and social media, and then we can work out the best way of moving forward. Counselling and therapy is about helping you – whether that is a deep understanding of yourself, your life and why you are the way you are; making changes in your life; working through persistent problems that seem to come up over and over again; or simply getting some outside perspective on a situation that’s weighing on your mind – I am here to help you.

Member organisations


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.
