About me

Life can present us with many challenges which may make us feel overwhelmed and unable to cope. These can interfere with our day to day living, create problems in our relationships and may lead to anxiety, low self-esteem, depression or other problems that can affect our well-being. I offer a warm, friendly and confidential space for you to talk through any problems you may be facing, helping you to make sense of things and gain a better understanding of yourself whilst supporting you in any changes you wish to make.

I am a qualified counsellor with experience of working with young people and adults including the elderly. My approach is integrative which means that I can draw on different theoretical approaches to suit your individual needs and best support you in achieving positive change.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their Ethical Framework for Good Practice. I also receive regular clinical supervision to ensure that I am working in the best way that I can for you.

Please contact me by phone or email to set up an initial meeting or if you have any questions or concerns you wish to talk through.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
