About me

I provide a safe, calm and non-judgmental space in which you can talk about any difficulties you may be experiencing. 

I work in a relational way, which means I will listen carefully, not make judgements and seek to help you make sense of your thoughts and feelings. Together we can explore the meanings you attach to your experiences and your relationships with others, helping you build your sense of self, your self esteem and ability to cope. Being truly heard, sometimes for the very first time, can be key in helping you feel better and enable you to find a new way forward.

I value the individuality of each client and will adapt my way of working to your needs. I hold firm the belief that every individual has potential to grow and change. I believe that the therapeutic relationship provides a supportive space to nurture such growth.

I have worked therapeutically with adults over a number of years and have experience in a variety of areas such as:

  • Attachment difficulties
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Identity
  • Fertility Issues
  • Grief
  • Low Self Esteem
  • Low mood
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Spirituality
  • Stress
  • Impact of prescribed psychiatric drugs
  • Addiction

I have completed specialist training in bereavement counselling and have worked with Cruse Bereavement counselling. 

Please do contact me if you have a specific issue I have not mentioned.

I know it can be hard to work out who is the right counsellor for you, therefore I offer an introductory session at a reduced rate of £20, with no obligations to book again. Please email me to arrange this. We will talk about what you would like to get out of counselling, see if it feels like the right fit for you, and if you are happy to continue we'll set up future sessions.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
