I am a BACP trained, registered and accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist working from my own practice in SA1, where I provide a confidential, accepting space to gently explore the challenges you may be facing.
Whether you need to untangle something unresolved from your past, or set fresh goals for the future, counselling is a valuable path to awareness and clarity. As an Integrative counsellor I am able to draw on a range of approaches to address your individual requirements.
Maybe you are anxious or depressed. Maybe you are experiencing the remnants of trauma or abuse. Maybe you just want to get to know yourself better and reach towards achieving a more fulfilling life. In each circumstance I offer a warm, non-judgemental space to address each issue.
I have spent a great deal of my practice in the area of loss. Whether it’s the loss of a loved one, your health, a relationship, of opportunities, even the loss of a sense of self. The changes loss can bring often leave us reeling and searching for direction. I have a broad experience of Trauma, Grief Therapy and Bereavement Counselling in an NHS setting and am equipped to sensitively help you move forward.
I am an accredited member of the BACP, also an accredited Action Learning Facilitator, Before training as a counsellor I worked in various creative fields, so if a more creative approach is what you would like then I am able to facilitate this too.
I have 7 years experience as an NHS practitioner.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
