About me

I offer a safe and confidential space where we can explore what is going on for you. Are you struggling at the moment? Feeling anxious and over-thinking things? Problems with relationships? You don’t have to suffer on your own.

I am a qualified Humanistic counsellor, very warm, accepting, non-judgmental and I offer both open-ended and short term therapy. I provide an integrative approach and use different elements of Humanistic Therapies depending on your specific needs. I am here for you if you are going through something that is difficult, unbearable and may feel hopeless. Please bring whatever you’re struggling with to the safety of our therapy sessions and together we will find a way forward for you.

Life can be very difficult at times and I understand how facing things alone can be hard. Through talking together in our sessions, I can help you understand yourself better and stand by your side as you create positive and lasting change.

I have regular supervision and often attend workshops to further my development.  I enjoy working creatively with my clients and this sometimes helps those who find it hard to say how they are feeling. I am fully insured and have a valid DBS Certificate.

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.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

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.
