About me

I am a fully qualified, experienced psychotherapist.  I offer therapy in comfortable surroundings and tailor your sessions according to your needs. 

My aim is to help you explore and resolve your issues in a supportive, non judgemental and empowering manner. 

I am warm, compassionate and am accepting of whatever you choose to bring to counselling.  I am passionate about the work I do and I genuinely care for my clients.  My hope, always, is to create a safe, comfortable environment for you to talk freely to me.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
