About me

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