About me


People come to counselling for all sorts of reasons. It may be that you are finding life difficult at the moment and just need a space to talk freely. It may also be that you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed and feel you need a safe space to explore this. There may have been an event in your past or more recent future that troubles you. Alternately you may have goals and aspirations that you want to achieve but are not sure how. Counselling can offer you a non-judgemental space to explore all aspects of how you are feeling, in your own time at your own pace. I am a fully qualified Person-Centred counsellor here to help.

What I can offer
Providing empathy, understanding and confidentiality I hope we can build a relationship with trust that will enable you to feel comfortable to express your needs. I like to work with my clients in a collaborative way to ensure they are getting what they want from their sessions. I look forward to working alongside you with whatever you bring.

Looking for the right therapist for you can feel confusing and daunting. Please feel free to contact me to chat more about what I can offer you and what your expectations are around counselling. It may be that you are not sure what you want but know that now is the time to find out. Any questions you have are welcome when you are ready. 

What I have experience working with

I have experience in working with the following:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • addiction
  • body image and eating disorders 
  • self-harm
  • bereavement/ Loss
  • relationship issues
  • trauma

During our initial session and throughout your counselling we can talk further about your expectations around counselling and what you want from your time. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Warm Regards


Training, qualifications & experience

My academic journey 
I started my academic career studying social sciences at college and then moved on to study Criminology and Psychology at Brighton University. It was here that I realised that rather than assessing clients I wanted to be part of the therapeutic process. I started studying counselling at Level one and continued through to Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, becoming fully qualified. 

Working ethically
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and therefore abide by their code of ethics while working. 

Continued Study
I am always looking to learn more and improve my skills. I have completed further studies (CPDs) on Anger management, bereavement, addiction and working with dreams. I continue to study areas to improve my practice

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.
