About me

As unique individuals we experience different situations, events and upbringings which shape and influence how we think, feel and behave.  Talking to a Counsellor can help facilitate exploration into present and past experiences or identify and overcome negative patterns.  I offer a safe, confidential and empathic space where together we can gain awareness of unconscious behaviour, work to overcome issues and facilitate positive change.  I can help you to explore your emotions, create new insights and break troubling thoughts or behaviour patterns.

I also work extensively with young people to reduce emotional barriers to learning and lots of other issues such as anxiety, identity, depression, self esteem and irrational fears that may be impacting on their development.

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.
