I bring an eclectic approach to my counselling sessions. The foundation of my work lies in the Person-Centred therapeutic model which asks that you tap into the innate wisdom that is within you. I’m a straight-talker and I encourage clients to use me as a sounding board and catalyst for change.
I provide a safe and non-judgemental space to explore those beliefs and patterns of behaviour that are preventing you from creating the life you want and living it in an authentic manner. It’s not my place to give advice or tell you what to do, as only you can be the expert on your feelings, your emotions, and your life experiences. Counselling is a process of change and working at your pace, I will support you through your issues or Life transitions.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
