About me

Feeling anxious, depressed, stuck? Need somewhere to talk without being judged -  somewhere safe to explore difficult or painful thoughts and experiences? I can help you get a better understanding of what's going on and explore ways to move forward. I work with issues around depression, anxiety, trauma, identity, sexuality, gender and spirituality.  

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified person-centred counsellor and registered member of BACP. I am a Nichiren Buddhist which means I believe in the deep potential of each person, no matter what they might have experienced in the past or what they are experiencing right now. Previously, I have worked in theatre, arts development and festival management. 

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.
