About me

Welcome... I am a BACP registered and Accredited integrative counsellor/psychotherapist offering short or long term therapy to individuals and couples.

I am a fully qualified EMDR therapist.


I provide a comfortable, non-judgemental and confidential space for you to explore at your own pace, feelings and thoughts you may be struggling with.

My aim is to help individuals gain emotional strength and a greater sense of self in a safe and supportive environment where you are heard, understood and fully accepted for who you are.

I believe you are the expert on yourself, there are no expectations to be anybody other than you!

I will help gently guide you to create the changes you wish, for your own wellbeing.


I value Honesty, integrity and connection, I believe people can be encouraged to find their own answers.

I am comfortable tolerating others distress, fears and silences.. I am confident sitting with emotions and not afraid to feel and challenge them.

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.

Key details

DBS check

Wheelchair user access

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.
