About me


I am a BACP accredited counsellor/psychotherapist with more than 15 years experience. I have a wide range of experience working with adults, young people/children, couples and relationships, and groups.

I provide a confidential space where we can explore what is happening in your life. You may not understand why you feel the way you do, or you may have something specific you would like to talk through with someone. This could be anxious feelings, low mood, a bereavement or relationship difficulties for example. We can look at these issues together. I work at your pace and with what you bring to the sessions.

Sometimes it can feel daunting and be difficult to make the first step. I offer a non-judgemental and empathic space - the emphasis on developing a relationship together that can help you understand your experiences better.

If you would like to know more about how we can work together please get in touch.

Please contact me by email, text or phone call:

  • a free initial phone discussion.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
