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 a qualified Therapeutic 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.
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.

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.
