About me

Do you feel 'stuck' in your life?

Perhaps you have unresolved issues from your past that you cannot move on from, or you are having problems understanding yourself or your relationships with others. Here is where Counselling can help.

I am a Relational Therapist whose grounding is in the Person-Centred Approach to counselling, where YOU, the client, are the ultimate expert on your inner world. By working together collaboratively, we will find the answers to the questions you have, thereby empowering you to take charge of your life and make it what you want it to be.

My areas of experience are around Bereavement, Gender Dysphoria, Sexuality, Anxiety Issues, Anger Management, Discrimination and Substance Abuse.

I have regular monthly supervision to ensure that I'm working in the best way to support my clients and I'm also fully ensured to practice privately. I'm a registered member of the BACP which means that you can be assured that I work to their ethical framework.

If you would like to have a free initial consultation, please contact me to arrange a convenient time to talk.

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.
