About me

Has something happened or is happening and your finding it difficult to cope?

Are you feeling anxious, sad, lonely, angry or just generally not you? Are these feelings making life increasingly difficult? Would you like to talk to someone who you can truly open up to, in confidence and without judgement?. Someone who will listen hear’ and understand you.

I genuinely want to help people feel better about themselves and lead a happier, healthier life. I can provide a safe and welcoming environment, giving you the space and time for you to explore all that you are feeling and experiencing, and together we may be able to make sense of those feelings and enable you to see a light at the end of the tunnel.

I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist providing counselling to adults 18 and over. I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists [BACP]. I have experience working with mild and moderate mental health issues including anxiety, low mood, relationship and family issues and bereavement. I also offer supervision to qualified counsellors and students.

I offer therapy face to face, online via Zoom or by telephone.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss the counselling process further and hopefully dispel any fears or worries you may have around entering therapy.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
