I offer a safe, therapeutic and non judgemental space for clients to share and explore any personal challenges or concerns, no matter how big or small.
I work in an integrative and holistic way with a Person Centred emphasis. This enables me to draw upon a variety of different approaches which can lead to a more tailor made therapy that fits with the clients individual needs.
With a long history working and training in the healing arts I am also able to offer various creative methods, including Person Centred Expressive Arts Therapy, Mindfulness and Body Listening.

I have worked in the caring profession for over 20 years and in that time have gained an immense amount of experience with all types of people. I believe this has been one of my greatest learning pathways in life and an invaluable resource to how I relate to people. As a result, I went on to train as a counsellor in 2014. I have since worked in Substance Misuse and also a children's centre working with young parents, as well as working as a general counsellor for an agency. I now work in private practice from home.
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.
Accredited register membership

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).
