About me

When life gets busy, it can be easy to forget how we are really feeling. Everyday we are faced with some form of barrier which can be stressful and at times hard to cope with however, these could also be triggered by unresolved events from the past.

Not only can this affect our mood but also, our bodies, emotions, feelings and thoughts about ourselves, the world and others.

With the professional relationship between client and therapist at the heart of therapy, working collaboratively with a counsellor can support you in understanding these issues and achieving your personal goals.

Attending therapy can be a daunting experience therefore, providing a safe, non-judgmental space to explore emotions and feelings in depth are at the core of my practice. By maintaining a natural empathetic approach, focus remains on the client during every session. My main therapeutic approaches are Person-Centred, CBT and Psychodynamic.

Reaching out for help is never easy however, it is the start of the road to acceptance and openness to change. Exploring how we feel can open new doors to different perspectives on situations past or present. We're all unique and cope in different ways therefore I believe every emotion is valid and every feeling is real, even if it doesn't make sense!

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.
