About me

Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. Counselling can help with lots of issues that you may be experiencing including depression anxiety self-esteem lack of confidence or simply you just need someone to listen in a non-judgemental way. I offer a safe confidential space for you to come and talk through what is worrying you. I myself benefited from counselling when I was going through a difficult time so I know how beneficial this process can be but I also recognise that taking the first step into seeking counselling can be difficult for a number of reasons.

That's why I offer a free initial non-obligation telephone consultation. This will give you an opportunity to talk to me and help you make an informed decision on choosing the right counsellor for you. I am a trained integrative counsellor which means I can adapt my therapeutic approach to suit you. I am a compassionate empathetic person with a down to earth friendly approach. I can provide you with a safe confidential space to explore the issues that you bring. I will not judge you. I will listen and work with you to seek ways for you to move forward at your own pace.

Please feel free to get in touch.

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.

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.
