Things are not right at the moment. The lockdown is affecting people in different ways, such as Depression, Anxiety, Loss and Bereavement, Loss of work, Loss of Lifestyle, Relationship issues, Social Anxiety, Agoraphobia, Needle Phobia. I am here to help and I offer a safe environment where this can be explored.

I believe that the individual is the expert and therefore you have the power to create changes in your live and I am here to help you achieve that.

Are you living with unwanted thoughts, feelings, emotions perhaps experiencing Anxiety, depression, feeling unhappy or you feel stuck and don't know why, then we are here for you.

I have experience in working with Adults and young people aged between 8 and 18 years. I run a private practice and also work with a local charity where the majority of my client work is with the Blue Lights Emergency Services, and also, Children and young people.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
