About me

I know how it feels to lose trust in your own inner voice, and I believe passionately that Person-Centred Counselling can be a powerful support to gain back that trust. Perhaps you struggle to make sense of the way you were parented. Perhaps you have experienced an abusive or toxic relationship, or a major life event that felt like it pulled the rug from under you. Perhaps there are a combination of factors that bring you to consider counselling. I offer a free consultation, as I understand that you need to find the right fit for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, and am a registered member of BACP.

I am also qualified in Youth and Community Work, and have considerable experience of working with children and young people.

I am fluent in British Sign Language.

Many of my clients have experienced situations of abuse, either as adults or children. I work with a number of domestic abuse agencies, and have a particular understanding of narcissistic abuse.

I am trained to counsel online and by telephone as well as face to face.

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.
