About me and my practice
It may sometimes feel like life has lost its meaning and the ability to cope is becoming incredibly difficult leading to breakdown or stressful situations. Having a safe space, someone who understands your world and willing to help clarify the root of your problem whilst guiding you in making decisions and life’s choices may help to bring about a positive change.
I will provide you a confidential and supportive space where you can discuss difficulties free from criticism or judgement, share feelings, look more deeply at your past, present and future, giving meaning to your experiences. Together, we will develop a professional relationship where healing and an emotional shift can occur; resulting in growth and improved well-being.
What I can help with
Abuse, addictions, anger management, anxiety, bereavement, depression, diversity issues (cultural, gender, disability), health related issues, loss, relationship difficulties, redundancies, self-worth, shame, stress and work-related issues

How I deliver therapy
I offer long-term, short-term and time-limited counselling sessions that is best suited to your needs
I’m guided by ethical practices of the BACP.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
