About me

A warm welcome and thank you for taking time to look at my profile.

It's quite a daunting thought looking for a counsellor and admitting that you need help or guidance. Let me reassure you the first step can be the hardest and that’s a normal feeling.

Let me introduce myself I’m a counsellor who specialises in life and people. I work in a creative way, which means all my learning is adapted to fit uniquely to you. I am an individual member of the BACP (British Association of counselling and Psychotherapy) and adhere to their ethical framework. Which can be found at WWW.bacp.co.uk

It can be really tough talking to someone about things that are going on in your head. I can offer you a safe, confidential space to explore your thoughts and feelings.
Sometimes in life we can hit a low point or get stuck and not know where to go next. Having someone to listen to you can start to make sense of it all and then the healing process can begin. Through my journey of self-discovery, I had to look deep inside, so I can understand how hard it can be and there is no shame in asking to be listened too.

Sometimes in life we need more support, a non-judgemental ear, warmth and understanding. Things come along everyday that can challenge us and make us doubt who we are.

  • Have you ever thought, why do I keep falling for the same type of person to find out that it’s not working again?
  • Why do I judge yourself by other people’s achievements?
  • How is it that social media can make us feel inadequate, sad or angry?
  • Why is it hard to get up in the morning and face the day? What’s missing or who is missing?
  • Counselling can help you cope with difficulties, understand yourself better and make positive change.

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

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.
