About me

Hello - I appreciate taking that first step towards personal therapy can sometimes be a little scary and finding the right counsellor for you can, therefore, be a daunting task. I feel I can offer you a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to explore whatever challenges or difficulties you may be facing.

Would you find it helpful to have the opportunity to talk to someone who will really listen to you? By working together, we can hopefully establish a therapeutic relationship where you will feel understood and empowered.

Clients I have worked with have reflected how they have felt heard, understood and accepted. Often they have been able to resolve painful and difficult issues from their past and make positive changes, enabling them to fulfil their potential as well as growing in self belief and confidence.

Depending on your needs, I am able to offer short or longer term therapy, ranging from six sessions to open-ended work. I have been in practise for over ten years as an integrative therapist and offer a variety of approaches including Psychotherapy, CBT and Person-centred Therapy.

Some of the areas I specialise in cover, bereavement, substance abuse, addictions, young people, relationship issues, sexuality, emotional, physical and sexual abuse and trauma.

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.
