About me

Hello there.

Thanks for considering me as a possible therapist - and taking the time to read this.

I’ve been honoured to be helping people on their journey towards mental wellbeing for several years now. I’ve experience of working in the NHS environment alongside GPs and their patient's mental health concerns.

I'm not a life coach, I'm not an expert in your life. But I am educated and qualified to help you work through your thoughts and emotions - especially as they impact you in today's modern world.

Feel free to contact me. It would be great to have an initial chat, and we can make a decision whether or not to take things from there.

Best regards

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an Honours Degree in Psychology and a Postgraduate Qualification in Psychotherapy and Counselling.

I adhere to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) code of ethics, with whom I am registered and the British Psychological Society (BPS), of whom I am a graduate member.

I focus on a person-centred approach with an emphasis on the integration of practices oriented towards resolution of trauma and associated learned coping behaviour.

Before we have our first session, we will have a brief introductory call to discuss how you are - what is troubling you - and how I could best assist.

As an outcome of this first call, I'll be able to advise a way forward - most likely contracting to work together for a minimum of six weekly sessions. After that, we can re-evaluate and chart the way forward together.

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.

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.
