About me

Are you experiencing feelings of anxiety, low self-esteem, self-doubt or depression? Do you need some support and strategies to help deal with these overwhelming feelings or maybe just someone to talk to.

I would be glad to welcome you into a warm, safe, non-judgemental, open minded environment which will allow you to share feelings, explore ideas and get to know yourself better. I can offer one to one, short or long term counselling to suit individual needs.

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.
