I am a BACP registered counsellor working with adults and young people. Having trained in integrative counselling, I combine my private practice with counselling people affected by cancer at The Mulberry Centre, and young people aged 11-24 at Off The Record (youth counselling charity). I work with a broad client base presenting with a wide range of issues including anxiety and stress, relationship issues, existential issues and life transitions.
I offer an empathetic, supportive therapeutic relationship and a confidential space where clients can explore issues and concerns safely without judgement.
We can start with an initial assessment to see if I am going to be the right counsellor for you, and whether my approach will suit your needs. There is no commitment beyond this session unless you choose to carry on.
Following an integrative approach, I draw on different theories and research to provide a supportive and collaborative therapy to suit each individual client. I am guided by each person to work at the pace and depth which they feel comfortable with.
I offer both short-term and open-ended counselling. Sessions last for around fifty minutes, usually taking place on a weekly basis at the same time.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
