I am a qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP) and the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO). I have a background in Psychology (BSc), Change and Talent Management and I have been trained in different therapeutic models and methods incorporating humanistic, psychodynamic, CBT and existential mindfulness practice. I am also a trained Mindfulness Teacher and I am especially passionate about the many benefits a mindful practise can bring to help to alleviate stress and improve well-being. As well as working in a private practice, I have also worked in a local counselling centre for young and adult carers and for a national charity for counselling children. Some of the difficulties I have worked with include bereavement, trauma, abuse, addiction, depression and anxiety, self-esteem issues, relationship and work related stress.
I believe everyone is equal and unique and my aim is to offer a safe, therapeutic, non-judgemental relationship where I hope you will feel heard, understood and accepted so that you can explore and gain a deeper understanding of the issues that have brought you here.
Currently, I am offering counselling services online to both adults and young people aged over 18 years old.
As I understand the importance of finding the right counsellor for you, I offer an initial 20-30 minute initial free consultation by phone to explore how we may be able to move forward together. Please do get in touch.

I also hold a Bachelor degree in Psychology (BSc) and a Level 1 Certificate in Mindfulness Training (MBCT), alongside a Certificate in Online Counselling.
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.
