I offer a safe, confidential space where we can explore what is going on for you. Are you struggling with life at the moment? Perhaps feeling isolated and lonely? Having difficulties 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 1-2-1 open-ended counselling sessions. 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.
*COVID-19 - During these difficult times I am working solely online with clients. Although this may seem a distant way of working, I have found it to be just as therapeutic as the more usual face-to-face sessions*

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I offer a 30-minute introductory session free of charge to make sure we are the right ‘fit’ for one another. Every counsellor will work slightly differently and finding the right one for you is a very important aspect of this work.

I enjoy walking, running and discovering new places to explore. I like listening to music and, when it's warm I love to swim in the sea.
