I am an authentic compassionate counsellor and psychotherapist who has spent most of her life trying to help others to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Change is possible, you don’t have to go around circles, you only need to find the right approach that works for you. I have a variety of holistic tools to help you go through the challenges you are facing, whether that’s causing you anxiety or depression.
Having been in private practice and in having worked in organisations such as the NHS and Higher Education for the last few years, I have gained substantial experience in helping people with a broad range of issues.
I use a treatment model which aims to bring effective change by exploring the roots of your current problems, which seeks not only to remove symptomatic suffering but also to help you live at your highest capacity- free to love and be loved, to work, create and to feel fully engaged with life.
I believe Counselling not only offers professional support in difficult times but is also an opportunity to grow, develop and understand ourselves more fully, leading us to discover our hidden potential and genius.

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.
