I am a fully qualified Person-Centred Therapist, I can help you to explore your own issues, feelings, beliefs and behaviours, so that you can become more self-aware and achieve greater happiness to build self-confidence and appreciate that you have options. You are the expert about yourself, that nobody knows exactly what it’s like to be you except you.
I will not judge you, this will help you to build a trustworthy relationship, in which you can be supported and able to disclose whatever is troubling you, I can provide a safe space for you without having to worry about the impact this might have on your friends and family.
I work with adults, children and adolescents.
I have completed additional training in other models of therapy including CBT, this means I can adapt the ways I work to suit you depending on your needs. I have also enjoyed a successful career in the telecommunications industry and have a great understanding of work-related stress, redundancy and changed, I have experience with a wide variety of people with a wide variety of difficulties.
I love my work being a witness to my clients change and grow is a real privilege I'm continually grateful to be placed in a position of such trust as they move towards a more fulfilling phase of their lives.
I believe that financial position should not be a barrier to someone seeking help from a counsellor, I'm able to offer concessions to low income, students or key workers.
Send me an email or message me I usually have a complimentary zoom session (30 mins) or a telephone call, this is an opportunity for you to ask questions and get a sense of what I am like, you can then decide if I'm the right fit for you.
In addition to being in private practice I also work in the education sector as a School Counsellor for primary and secondary aged young people.
As an experienced Bereavement Counsellor, I have helped many people struggling with grief and loss to find new paths to work through their emotions.

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.
