About me

Do you feel worried? Do you need to talk? Sometimes life can feel like an uphill struggle and we are not sure where to turn to 

I believe I can help you togain a  deeper understanding of yourself and the struggles that you are experiencing leading to an improved ability to relate to others and improved quality of life.

I am an experienced practitioner, and over the last 15years, I have worked closely with various organisations such as Secondary Schools, charitable trusts, EAP,  Emergency services workers, and  HMPPS across the UK.

I have gained extensive experience working with business professionals and in private practices with vulnerable clients, peers, young people /adults in stressful situations, and /or at risk.

I remain in ongoing monthly supervision and hold accredited registered membership with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.
