Making the decision and taking the first step in coming for counselling can be really difficult. As a psychotherapeutic counsellor I aim to make your process as supported as possible, offering a compassionate, non judgemental, confidential space for you to explore your difficulties at a pace that is right for you.
I am a registered member of the BACP and accredited by the UKCP. I have broad experience working with a wide range of psychological issues including anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement, relationship issues, historical trauma and panic attacks. I offer both short and long term sessions. I believe the therapeutic relationship is key to successful therapy and I use an integrative approach tailored to each individual.
I look forward to meeting you.

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.
