About me

Life rarely turns out the way you expect it to. Things come along which make you react in ways you wouldn't have predicted and which you don't always feel good about. Sometimes you find yourself repeating the same patterns, pushing the self-destruct button, or paralysed by not knowing which way to go next. You are aware that you need to face what’s really going on but it's hard to unpick it all.

There’s also a different 'you' that you’ve already started to bring to forefront through reading this profile. It's a journey, which takes time, but that 'you' is able to access how you really feel about things, to be honest about what that means and to take action accordingly. That 'you' can accept those things that can’t be changed and is full of energy in striving towards the things you do really want in all the important areas of your life. Imagine realising your potential, relaxing and enjoying the ride.

Wouldn't it be great to have a place to start to make this a reality? To have a warm, non-judgemental and confidential place to be yourself and explore issues that are important to you in the way that makes most sense to you?

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor, Coach and Personal Consultant. This means I take the best aspects of counselling, psychotherapy and coaching and put them together in a way that suits you, however it is you prefer to work. My approach is to combine the subtlety and depth offered by counselling and psychotherapy with the proactive potential for growth offered by coaching. I offer ways of working that suit my clients including a flexible commitment and evening appointments. Get in touch now to book a free consultation.

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.

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.
