About me

I know everyone has the potential within them to bring about change. My passion is supporting others in discovering and knowing who they truly are.

I believe the most important relationship we have is the one we have with ourself. If we can connect on a deeper level with ourselves it emanates into all our other relationships fostering greater connection with others.

I offer a unique blend of my studies in Counselling, Coaching, Psychotherapy, Reiki and the law of attraction to create a bespoke space for you.   Together we explore how you can unlock your limitations and learn to be your own best friend. This powerful combination of therapies allows you to explore your inner world, understand your story, moving through conscious, and uncovering unconscious, limitations and beliefs that are no longer serving you. Alongside this uncovering and moving through you will learn to hush the inner voice of the judge and critic, cultivate an inner voice of kindness and compassion.

This unique combination of exploration leads you to a space where you feel empowered and ready to rewrite your story, and decide what you wish for in your next chapter.

In my experience of working with clients all elements are essential in bringing about an energetic change to your inner world. When you make changes to your inner world it has a direct impact on how you experience your outer world.  

I know you have the potential within you to bring about change. I work in such a way to help you discover how to. All I require you to bring is an openness, courage and commitment to walk this path and to allow your truths to unfold.

If you wish to explore this further then please get in contact for a complementary chat to see how we can work 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 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.
