About me

I am a qualified Person-Centred and Trauma-Focused Therapist who works to support clients in exploring their feelings and encourage them to move towards a deep sense of empowerment and positive change within themselves and in their life.

I am a creative and open-minded counsellor and psychotherapist, who will work alongside you to reach your goals, whether that’s about putting yourself first, setting boundaries or improving your mood. You don’t have to go through your change alone. If you feel you would benefit from talking confidentially to a professional counsellor and psychotherapist in a private, safe space then maybe I can help?

I welcome adults of all cultures and diverse backgrounds, ages and sexual orientation, LGBTQ+.

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.

Accredited register membership

Further information

You might be feeling lost, continuously anxious, fearful, disconnected or feeling very low about yourself. Maybe these are just a few reasons why you are considering counselling and you would like to explore more, whether about yourself, your life or your relationship with others.

I invite you to contact me so we can work on finding the cause for what’s making your life difficult and perhaps hopeless. I will work collaboratively with you to explore the issues, thoughts and feelings you are having difficulties with in order to make sense of them and to make changes that will enable you to grow and feel more content and fulfilled in your life.

I believe you are the expert of your life, you hold all the resources you need to navigate yourself through your path and you may just need some help and support to connect to them.

Therapy can be short-term, for a specific issue, or longer-term, to deal with more difficult emotions or your desire for more personal development. Either way it is most common to schedule weekly sessions.

Areas of counselling: Anger, Low self-esteem, Gender, Sexuality, Identity issues, Loss, Bereavement, Grief, Discrimination, Diversity, Culture, Immigration, Racism, Loneliness, Feeling sad, Anxiety, OCD, Depression, Self-harm, Health anxiety, Relationship issues, Family issues, Abuse, Trauma and PTSD.
