About me

I mainly work with LGBTQ+ clients and those who have always felt ‘different’ in some way.   My focus is on working with you to understand why you feel the way you do and what might help.  

You may be seeking help because you

  • Experience anxiety in situations others seem to manage with ease or feel taken over by difficult emotions.
  • Feel like you’re getting in your own way, repeating the same unhelpful patterns and ways of coping which no longer serve you but seemingly unable to change
  • Have a harsh inner critic, find yourself doubting yourself, or staying ‘small’
  • Are dealing with the effects of prejudice, discrimination, rejection or other negative experiences

You don’t have to go through this alone, together we can help you bring about the changes you want for a life that’s more fulfilling.

My counselling approach draws from a range of therapy models and aims to create a welcoming space where you feel safe and able to be seen so you can better know, understand and accept yourself.  We will explore patterns in your relationships with yourself and others, how your past may be affecting your present, and what to do about it.

Life can be really challenging and sometimes we all need some extra support to help navigate it. I’ve been there and I understand. If you are interested in therapy with me please get in touch by e-mail. My practice is currently online so you don’t need to worry about location and can instead focus on finding the right therapist for you. I offer a free 20 minute appointment so you can ask any questions and we can see if we are a good fit.

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.
