Coming to counselling can be a daunting step but can transform your life. My aim is to help you to better help yourself. I work with you to find what works best for you and how I can best support you. I have extensive experience working with a wide range of issues including anxiety, bereavement, caring issues, cultural issues, depression, short and long term heath conditions, relationships problems, stress and work and employment related issues.
Counselling is an invaluable investment in yourself. I offer long and short term counselling; online and telephone counselling is also available. I review progress with you, including what has and hasn't worked every few sessions.
I am trained and qualified in an integrative and holistic type of counselling. This means I can draw on a wide rage of therapies e.g. CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), person centered and humanistic therapy to tailor my approach to your needs and reflect who you are.
I offer confidential counselling in a safe and quiet environment. Previous clients have commented how warm, non-judgemental and helpful I am. Please see my website for more information.
I am also a qualified supervisor and work with individuals, groups and counselling trainees.

Registered Counsellor, Reg MBACP
I have extensive experience counselling clients with wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement, cultural issues (race, religion and identity), depression, health conditions, relationship problems and stress and other difficult emotional issues.
In addition I have worked in large and small organisations so have a deep understanding of the work and employment issues you may face. I have also been a carer so have first hand experience of the complex and stressful issues carers deal with daily as well as counselling those who care for others.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and follow their code of ethics.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
