About me

Taking the first step into counselling, can be one of the hardest choices. Whether you are looking for short term support or want to explore deeper issues on a more open-ended basis. Therapy can offer a confidential, empathetic and supportive space to help you explore your challenges.

I believe in the power of a good connection between client and counsellor. When this connection happens, clients are able to unlock their potential and find the courage, confidence, inspiration to help them continue to be the best they can be.

I am a Person Centred Counsellor, which means, you lead the direction of our sessions. Therapy is individual and it is ultimately tailored to your needs. I am motivated to help clients help themselves. With dedication and connection something really amazing can come out of the sessions and start a new life journey.

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.

Further information

We all have the autonomy to decide our own destiny. In life we tend to look to others for guidance, direction or approval. I believe the moment you begin to trust your internal self is more powerful than any external force.

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.
