About me

My training and experience as an integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor enables me to work with you in a way that best suits your needs.

I will support you to find more effective ways to address difficult issues and challenges, tools to help you manage your mood, anxiety or depression. Our time together will lead you to a greater understanding of your wellbeing needs and choices.

You can begin your journey today, learn to understand yourself and evaluate the choices you make. With my support it is possible for you to see your world through new eyes.

  • Short term solution focused
  • Longer term for those wishing to explore at depth or needing continued support
  • Particularly experienced in working with anxiety and depression
  • Specialist training to work with clients who are/have experienced trauma
  • I can work creatively with those clients that would like to try this. Working creatively can often help in accessing our unconscious or what is hidden from us.

Member organisations


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.
