About me

Person Centred Counselling is a model that can support a variety of client issues. I have been practicing now for a number of years and have worked with a range of complex issues; including but not limited to, depression, anxiety, addiction, self worth, sexuality, sexual health, birth, miscarriage, masculinity, grief, ageing, abuse, disability, custody, parenting and relationships.

Life can be overwhelming and it can be difficult at times to manage the challenges it brings. Counselling can offer a safe space to explore yourself and make sense of life's experiences at your own pace.

I work in a professionally confidential manner, providing a safe, non judgemental and trusting environment for clients to explore their issues.

I believe that you are your own expert and I offer understanding, empathy and respect towards your self and your experiences whilst you embark on your journey of self exploration.

Email or call me to book in for a free 45 minute initial session, this time will allow opportunity to meet each other and ensure that we are both suited to work together.

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.
