I aim to help people work through their problems, such as depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, life direction, seeking purpose and to improve relationships. I also Provide long-term therapy for issues concerning childhood trauma and abuse. I work with clients of all ages from school children, teenagers and adults.
In the therapy sessions I provide, you can take time out from your day-to-day life and reconnect with yourself by addressing the issues that have been affecting your wellbeing. No matter how complex the issue may be, I will guide and support you through your journey, and I use a range of counselling and psychotherapy techniques to achieve the desired outcome.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). As a counsellor, I will provide a safe and confidential therapeutic space, which will enable us to explore the issues present in your life. If you feel you need support or are interested in finding out a little bit more about what counselling might be like? You can call for advice.

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.
