About me

I specialise in dealing with the uncomfortable realities and challenges which many of us face. These may come in the form of depression, anxiety, bereavement or any other stresses we can encounter in the modern world.

I offer a safe place to explore the way in which the issues you are experiencing are affecting your relationships. This could be your relationship with people or your relationship with yourself. Together, we will uncover the obstacles that prevent meaningful connections.

Once the obstacles to connecting are uncovered, they are no longer unconscious and are less likely to sabotage our experiences.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered member of the BACP and my background training is as a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor. I am experienced in mindfulness and using meditation to re-write the unconscious programs, or blocks, that hold us back from living the lives we want.

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.
