About me

I am an integrative counsellor, meaning that I am trained in Psychodynamics, CBT and Humanistic approaches. Knowing that every client is unique I have a wide variety of counselling techniques that are adaptable to meet your specific requirements.

I have experience with a wide range of conditions and clients and aim to work along side you in creating a brighter and positive future.

From my own experience seeking counselling and finding the right counsellor can be a daunting task but it can be the first step to change.

I hope to help you reach your goals or gain a deeper understanding into things that you may have experienced or find difficult.

My Approach:

I offer a safe environment where you will not be judged. This gives you the opportunity to off load while gaining acceptance of who you are. It also allows you to reconnect with your own values and sense of self-worth. Reconnecting with your inner self helps to find your own way to move forward and reach your goals.

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.
