About me

Welcome to your first step towards a healthier, more fulfilled life. As an experienced Counsellor, I deeply understand the intricacies of the human mind and the complexities of life that bring you to seek guidance and support. My approach is grounded in empathy, respect, and a profound belief in the innate strength of every individual. Focused on building a strong, therapeutic relationship, I create a safe and supportive environment where you can feel comfortable to express yourself freely.

My expertise spans a wide range of areas, including anxiety, depression, stress management, relationship issues, life transitions, and self-esteem challenges. I employ a variety of therapeutic techniques tailored to your unique needs and goals. Whether you're dealing with a specific issue, seeking to overcome past traumas, or simply striving for personal growth and better life balance, I am here to support and empower you.

I am committed to helping you discover your inner strengths, learn effective coping skills and make meaningful changes that will enhance your life. Together, we can explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours in a deep and meaningful way, paving the path to healing and personal development.

Embark on this journey with me, and let's work together towards unlocking your full potential for a happier, healthier life.

Training, qualifications & experience

With over 20 years of experience working in the NHS, I bring a unique depth of empathy, understanding, and practical knowledge to my counselling practice. My extensive background has equipped me with a profound appreciation for the interconnectedness of physical and mental health, allowing me to offer a holistic approach to emotional well-being. This blend of disciplines enables me to understand the multifaceted nature of healing and the importance of nurturing both the mind and body in pursuit of wellness.

My career has honed my ability to communicate with compassion, listen attentively, and respond to the needs of individuals from diverse backgrounds and with varied health concerns. These skills are instrumental in creating a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space where you can explore your feelings and challenges openly.

Having witnessed the resilience of the human spirit in the face of physical and emotional adversity, I am uniquely positioned to encourage and empower you as you navigate life's complexities. My goal is to help you harness your own resilience, fostering self-awareness, and promoting healing and personal growth.

Whether you're dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, or life transitions, my dual expertise in nursing and counselling provides a comprehensive perspective that can help you achieve a balanced and fulfilling life. Together, we will work toward not just overcoming your immediate concerns, but also building a foundation for lasting mental and emotional health.

I encourage enquiries from the LGBTQ+ community, those with a military background, first responders and those with previous negative experiences in therapy.

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.

Additional information

If you're interested in beginning counselling or have any questions about the process, please don't hesitate to reach out. I offer a free, initial 15-minute online or telephone consultation to discuss your needs, answer questions, and ensure we are a good fit for each other.

I offer personalised sessions at a fee of £40 for a 50-minute session. I believe that emotional wellness should be within reach for everyone, and I've structured my fees to reflect this principle.

For those facing financial difficulties, I encourage an open dialogue to discuss how we can make counselling work for you.

I provide sessions both in-person and online via a secure video platform, giving you the flexibility to choose what works best for you, regardless of your location or schedule constraints.

Full payment is required in advance for all booked sessions.

Further information

Making contact with me may seem daunting and it can feel like a step into the unknown. It's natural to be fearful about reaching out for help. Everything is confidential and I am able to offer support and guidance through the process of seeking therapy. It is a personal decision you should feel comfortable making and you can be yourself without judgement. 

Taking the step to seek support is a sign of strength and the beginning of your path to healing and self-discovery.
