About me

Hello - and a warm welcome to my profile!

Here's a little about me, and you can find out more on my website if you'd like to:

I am a qualified counsellor and my approach is Person-Centred Integrative. Put simply, I believe that you, the client, are the expert on your own life and know where it hurts. Even if you might not think it yet, I trust that you have the answers within; my role is to be alongside and help you find them, however challenging that might be.

A good therapeutic relationship is at the heart of counselling. I am genuine and warm, and hope you’ll find me easy to talk to. You are welcome to get in touch for a short, informal conversation and get an idea of how we might work together.

I offer sessions via Zoom or phone and have availability at weekends. Hours are from 9AM to 2PM on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

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.
