About me

Hi, welcome to my counselling service. I am a qualified person-centred counsellor offering face-to-face, online and telephone counselling to adults and young people.

Sometimes life can feel overwhelming and heavy with emotion. You may be feeling depressed and/or anxious or you may be struggling to deal with pain, problems and challenges in your life. These struggles might be affecting your relationships, work or family life.

Part of the aim of therapy is to support growth and initiate change in thoughts and emotions which may have become unhelpful.

Therapy can help develop greater emotional regulation, improved self-awareness and a deeper understanding of your life which in turn can lead to enhanced wellbeing.

Once you have made the decision to enter into therapy, finding a suitable counsellor can feel overwhelming. Acknowledging that you need some help is a big part of the process especially if you feel anxious and are already struggling. I offer a free initial 15 minute telephone call, which will hopefully ease some of these worries.

If you would like to share your worries and challenges with someone who listens in a non-judgmental way and has your best interests at heart, maybe a person-centred counsellor is for you. I offer a safe, confidential and empathetic space where you will feel valued and where we can work together, in collaboration to explore your challenges

I am humanistic at my core and use an integrative approach incorporating other solution focused modalities such as CBT and Compassion Focused therapy.

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.
