About me

"Life can be accompanied with stress and difficulties that can often leave you struggling to cope daily. Counselling provides support to people, allowing them to share these experiences in a comfortable, safe space in order to gain understanding and live a more fulfilled life".

I am a qualified counsellor registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I offer a safe, empathetic, non-judgemental environment to work together in confidentiality. Giving you the space to talk freely regarding issues that are affecting you and explore them within the therapy.

I use an integrative approach, meaning I have experience in working in various therapeutic ways. I particularly lean towards the person-centered approach. Additionally, I also draw upon cognitive behaviour therapy and mindfulness techniques, as this can help the clients along the journey of their therapeutic process. I treat each client as a unique individual and therefore adapt the therapy to the needs of the client and in a way that is best suited to them.

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.
