About me

I offer confidential counselling and psychotherapy. Helping you gain clarity when life feels overwhelming. A space for when you feel anxious, depressed, or stuck repeating patterns of behaviour, or are struggling with relationship issues.

People come to counselling for a variety of reasons, at differing levels of distress or confusion. Whether you are troubled by a current situation, a painful or confusing past, or with concerns for your future - we work together, exploring solutions to the difficulties that are causing you unhappiness.

I offer a peaceful, confidential, non-judgemental space for you to talk about your life and relationships, working to gain insights, and moving towards change in a supportive environment.

I have worked as a Counsellor within the NHS, and in a University Counselling Service counselling staff and students. I have over fifteen years of experience working with clients from all walks of life in both long-term and time-limited brief therapy. I work with a wide range of presenting issues including: depression, anxiety and stress, low mood or mood swings, relationship issues, separation and divorce, bereavement and loss, low self-esteem, mid-life issues, working life challenges, procrastination and creativity block.

I am an Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) which is the largest professional body representing counselling and psychotherapy in the UK.

My Approach
I offer counselling and psychotherapy which may be long-term, or time-limited brief therapy. My approach is integrative, and is tailored to meet the needs of each unique client.

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.
