About me

There are many issues that can lead you to counselling-sometimes life can feel overwhelming, and we can often struggle to make sense of how we are feeling.  We are also living through a huge time of uncertainty which can feel really unsettling and lead us to feeling anxious and worried.  Talking things through in a safe and non-judgemental space can help us to process our thoughts and feelings and to feel calmer and more at peace with ourselves.

I am a warm, authentic and empathic counsellor who will work with you to explore the parts of your life that just don’t feel right and to help you work through any difficult feelings you may be experiencing. Having the space to be truly listened to and accepted fully can be a powerful experience that can bring about real change.

As a counsellor I support people with a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression or low self esteem and can help you to overcome whatever obstacles you may face to enable you to live more fully the life you want to lead.

I am currently working both face to face and online.  While many clients prefer face to face, working online provides accessibility to a wider client group.  This can prove more convenient to many clients and allows for clients to access sessions in the familiarity, safety and comfort of their own homes, or a location of their choosing.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.

There is a ramp to the building, which is all on one level. I also work online, providing accessibility to a wider client group.
