I am a fully qualified counsellor with over 7 years of experience.
I am extremely passionate about supporting individuals suffering with emotional distress and believe most people can be helped to self-soothe and heal. My style of counselling does not involve giving advice or telling clients what to do. Instead I feel that support and guidance in self-exploration is the key to better emotional well-being as once an individual can begin to recognise the real version of themselves, they can start to make changes to their lives and ways of thinking which work towards enabling recovery.
I have a relaxing and private counselling room in Hull and and offer appointments face to face on Saturdays. I offer online or telephone counselling some evenings and Saturdays.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
