About me

I am a counsellor with many years' experience, here to help you with issues such as stress and anxiety, depression, loss and relationship difficulties. I offer a confidential, supportive space for you to share your concerns and to feel seen, heard and understood with acceptance and warmth.

If you need some support in building your resilience, getting through a difficult time, dealing with a painful experience, looking at your relationships - I can help you find your way through to a greater sense of wellbeing, fulfilment and happiness.

I bring sensitivity and non-judgement to focus on you and your story. I offer insights and support with warmth and compassion, drawing from my training, my experience as a counsellor and my own journey through life.

I work with a variety of counselling models and techniques, exploring what works for you, on both a long-term and short-term basis. I am an experienced Mindfulness teacher with 27 years experience in mindfulness, as well as 12 years as a counsellor. 

If you are interested please reach out by phone or email to arrange an initial chat.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

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).
