About me

How counselling can help

At times we may come across difficulties in our lives and feel overwhelmed by our emotions. Most of us try to manage stressful times but often it helps to talk about our thoughts and feelings with a professional counsellor in a safe, non-judgemental space. Counselling can help provide a space to make meaningful connections, resulting in a greater sense of worth.

My approach

I am a warm and approachable person. I am able to offer a confidential and safe environment to explore how you are feeling and what is happening for you right now in your life. We will work together looking at thoughts and feelings. I work using an integrative approach, such as CBT, Humanistic and psychodynamic. I will aim to work with feelings that are present in the moment, often bringing mindfulness into sessions if clients are open to this.

Due to Covid -19 restriction, I recommend online or call sessions.

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.
