About me

Everyone goes through difficult times in life. But sometimes life can feel a real struggle where people may feel stuck, confused and unable to cope.

The aim of counselling is to give you an opportunity to explore difficult feelings, help you make sense and better manage them. I can help you by listening to you and exploring how you feel. Together we can work through your feelings, get a deeper understanding of who you are and find out what you need to live a more fulfilling and growthful life.

I offer a safe, professional, non-judgmental and confidential environment, counselling adults, adolescents and children. I can offer long term or short term counselling.

Common issues I have experience working with: anxiety, depression, isolation, anger, loss, bereavement, relationships, stress, low self-esteem, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, abuse. This is not intended to be a conclusive list. Please let me know the issue you would like to address to see if I can help!

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.
