About me

I am a fully-qualified counsellor, registered with the BACP. I support clients who are dealing with issues such as anxiety, low mood, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, addiction and bereavement.

We all experience difficult times in life and can sometimes feel stuck, overwhelmed, numb or lost. It may be that you’re coming to terms with a challenging life event, navigating a time of transition, or generally feeling unsure of the best way forward for you. 

As a person-centred counsellor, my role is to create a safe, supportive space where you have the freedom to talk about how you’re feeling with someone who isn’t a friend or a family member, and reflect on what you want from life.

Rather than telling you what to do, I’ll support you in exploring your thoughts and feelings at your own pace, allowing you to gain more clarity and reach your own conclusions and solutions. The aim is to help you find a way towards greater self-awareness and resilience, and a life that feels more meaningful and purposeful to you.

I have a warm, non-judgmental approach, and clients who range in age and life experience. As well as having my own private practice, I am an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist, a volunteer counsellor with We Are With You and a Bereavement Volunteer with Cruse Bereavement Support. 

To allow you to get a better understanding of counselling and how we might work together, I offer a first session at a reduced rate of £30. We can discuss what brings you to therapy and what you’d like to get out of our sessions, and you can get a better sense of whether my style and approach suit you. All sessions are up to an hour long and are entirely confidential. 

I am a registered member of the BACP and work in accordance with its Ethical Framework. I have ongoing clinical supervision and engage in continuing professional development. I also have an enhanced DBS certificate.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
