About me

Hello and welcome.

I'm an experienced and qualified therapist offering counselling / psychotherapy and supervision. I am Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

People access therapy for a variety of different reasons - anxiety, depression, panic to name but a few. You may have an area of your life that you are keen to explore, or perhaps you are less sure and that's ok too. Often the therapeutic relationship can offer new perspectives, experiences and awareness - perhaps new potentials or the rediscovery of something 'lost'. We are all unique I will work with you in a way that honours your experiences and respects you as an individual - supporting you to find your own direction and resources.

Talking to a counsellor can help you to feel listened to and understood. I will offer you an opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings in a confidential and non-judgemental setting. Whether you are looking to explore a specific aspect, or a more complex and deep-seated emotional issue, I offer the space for you to talk confidentially and feel listened to and supported. As a therapist I aim to create a relationship with you that is grounded in respect, openness and empathy. Therapy can be both challenging and empowering. My aim is to stand by your side through the ebb and flow.

Finding a therapist that feels right for you is important, so I offer a reduced fee initial appointment (up to 50mins) with no obligation, so that we can meet and get a sense of how we might work together.

I offer long term and short term work on a one to one basis for adults and young people.

I welcome any enquiries and am happy to try and answer any questions you might have. If I am unable to provide a service that feels right for you I might be able to offer you information on alternative services.

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.
