About me

During COVID-19 I am still able to offer remote support via either telephone or online counselling, please feel free to get in touch to find out how this may work for you.

An Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor, passionate about helping people resolve emotional and psychological issues.

If you are feeling low, depressed or anxious, struggle with troubling thoughts and behaviours, find relationships difficult, suffering from low self esteem, or feel like something is holding you back, counselling can help. You can reduce stress, manage emotions better, improve mood, become self aware, and gain clarity that will improve the quality of your life and relationships.

It is not always easy to talk about difficulties and look at issues that cause pain, I aim to ease this process and provide a calm, safe and confidential space for you to talk about issues that are important to you. Working together we can gain valuable insights and help you find coping mechanisms and solutions to your problems.

My practise is underpinned by principles that are based on compassion, non judgment, acceptance and commitment. As an integrative practitioner I draw upon several therapeutic models (CBT, psychodynamics, relational, humanistic, transpersonal, mindfulness) tailored to your individual needs.

A journey of self-discovery can be enlightening, healing and empowering. I am here to help you each step of the way.

How to get started:

First step is email me to set up an initial session or a pre consultation phone call. We will talk about what you want to get out of counselling, If your happy to continue I’ll set up a second session.

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.

Wheelchair user access


In light of the public health situation regarding coronavirus, online sessions are available as a alternative. I am accustomed to online working, and tend to use Skype or FaceTime
