About me

We’re naturally resilient, but it’s very hard to see ourselves sometimes when we’re stuck. Having another person to bounce things off of is freeing–it’s healing. So what does therapy look like? It’s usually a process of being heard, seen and cared about.  My role is in helping you tap into your own inner resources to find the answers that are right for you.

I am an experienced Counsellor offering long and short-term work with adults. Counselling is a place where you can speak freely; you will also find humour, compassion and acceptance.

My background includes a career in business sustainability, international aid, and community engagement. I've found that this diverse experience helps me to take a flexible and inclusive approach to counselling work, so that I can engage with the distinct personal situation of each individual within their particular social or cultural circumstances. I have experience working with clients dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, anger management, lack of sleep, addiction, low self-esteem, stress, relationships and other common mental health and well-being issues. 

It takes real courage to decide that you are ready to do something about how you are feeling or what is happening in your life. I would love to invite you to make a complimentary call to discuss some of your options and determine whether therapy with me is the right fit for you and your situation. Should you wish to contact me, you can reach me on the details above or in the sidebar.

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.
