About me

In person, online and by telephone for anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, relationships, depression, panic disorders, bereavement or change in routine, any life event or even non event can send us off course.

Through personal and professional experiences I am aware that we often find it difficult to create a space for ourselves in our busy lives where we can begin to discover what is and isn't working for us and who we truly are or would like to be.

I promote mental health and well being by using a variety of evidenced based approaches in my work, depending on what works for you. I aim to provide a safe space where I can support you on your journey. Often looking inwardly can be frightening and embarrassing; the counselling is without judgement, bias or prejudice.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Foundation Degree in science for Humanistic Counselling, awarded by Bath Spa University a  Level 5 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling and a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, a Certificate in Counselling Studies and a Certificate in Counselling Skills.

A certificate in  CBT (Cognitive Behaviour al Therapy)

I have a certificate in Supervision with Soul

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and hold a current Certificate of Proficiency.

I am fully insured and committed to continued professional development.

I have worked as a counsellor for 9 years 3 of those in a mental health charity and have experience of a variety of difficulties affecting mental health.  I currently work in private practise and am also a provider of counselling for Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP)

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.
