About me

I have extensive experience as an accredited Individual and Relationship Counsellor/Psychotherapist.
I offer you the opportunity to explore the emotional difficulties that you feel are creating problems in your life. I will enable you to understand your feelings and gain new awareness and insight into who you are. Together we can develop coping strategies and enable you to explore your options to lead a more satisfied life.

Relationships often break down due to a lack of  understanding, commitment or even boredom. The result can lead to a lack of communication, resentment, arguments and mistrust and can affect the ability for you both to enjoy your relationship. I will work with you to explore your fears, hopes and frustrations and enable you to gain new awareness into your way of relating. We will explore the dynamics of your relationships with the prospects of change.

Counselling can help cope with many issues including stress, anxiety, manage addictions and increase confidence. It can address issues of resentment and anger. Counselling can enable you to make positive choices and better manage relationships which often leads to greater compassion and increased intimacy

I have an anti-discriminatory approach working with both cultural difference and diversity.

Why not give me a call and see if I can help you lead a more happier and fulfilling life.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.
