About me

I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor offering counselling, psychotherapy and relationship therapy for individuals and couples. I have experience of working with a range of issues including trauma, depression and anxiety, problems with confidence or low self-esteem, sexuality, eating disorders or self harming, feeling sad for 'no' reason and family and relationships.

I have been trained in a combination of approaches including Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Psychodynamic and Person-Centred.

Working in an open and transparent way, I tailor my approach to suit your specific needs. I will provide a calm and reflective environment through which we can be curious and explore whatever it is you need to bring. Working together, we can review how you live and relate to others, both now and in the past, to enable you to make sense of how you are feeling and why, and to locate and develop your natural capabilities to enable you to support yourself better. This will be your space to be listened to, accepted and heard.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or to arrange an initial assessment appointment. Please contact me by filling out the form here. You can also call me on 07974 721758 if you would prefer to leave a message or speak to me first.

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
