About me

I am a humanistic counsellor and my person centred, existential approach underpins my strong value and belief system that every person is unique, as is their story and perspective.

I have an absolute belief in people’s capacity to realise their full potential. Through counselling and the development of a positive, non-judgemental therapeutic relationship, emotional challenges, barriers and imbalances can be identified and overcome, creating an opportunity for personal growth and change

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified Humanistic Integrative Counsellor FdSc and Registered member of the BACP.

My counselling experience is with Adolescents and Adults. I have worked with Surrey Care Trust, counselling and mentoring young people excluded from mainstream school with a wide and diverse range of presenting issues, for example bullying, anxiety, low self esteem, self harm, eating difficulties and suicidal ideation. I have also spent considerable time working one to one with young people who have moved away from their families, dealing with cultural adjustments, displacement, discrimination and a number of issues surrounding emotional and mental well being.

My experience with Adults ranges from short to long term counselling, covering issues such as anxiety, depression, anger management, relationship/marital difficulties, substance misuse, drug and alcohol dependency, performance struggles to name a few. I have worked with Catalyst specialising in substance misuse, the Grange; inspiring independence for adults with physical and learning disabilities and independently.

Member organisations


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.


I offer a free 15 minute telephone conversation prior to booking a first session.

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.
