About me

Are you seeking a compassionate and understanding therapist who truly listens? As a person centred therapist, I offer a safe, non judgemental space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings. My approach is tailored to your unique needs, empowering you to find your own path to healing and growth. With empathy and genuine care, I support you in overcoming life's challenges, improving your wellbeing, and achieving personal fulfillment. Take the first step towards a brighter more balanced future- if you are having any reservations I offer a 10 minute phone call free of charge to help with any questions you may have.

I am also a qualified personal trainer and nutritionist, if weight management and low self esteem is an issue for you, we can work together to work on your eating behaviours and patterns and look at changing exercise motivations and behaviours.

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.
