Sometimes people experience problems in their lives which they may be unable to deal with by themselves. I am an integrative counsellor that offers a warm, confidential space where you can express your thoughts and feelings openly without any judgement. Together, at your own pace, we can begin to explore any difficulties that are troubling you and work towards helping you to improve your life and overall well-being.
I have experience working with diverse groups of people comprising different ages, cultures and from various walks of life. Amongst these are individuals with a wide range of issues such as anxiety, low self-esteem, depression and relationship difficulties. I have also worked extensively with adults whom are carers to family members and understand the demands associated with this role.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and adhere to their ethical framework.
I understand that taking the first steps to seek counselling and finding the right counsellor may seem like a daunting task.
Please do not hesitate to contact me to arrange a free 30 minute consultation. This will be an opportunity for us to meet one another as well as decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
You will also be able to ask me any questions that you may have.

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.
