About me


Hi and welcome to my profile.

Life can be tough and it can sometimes be difficult to know where to turn to. I offer a warm and confidential environment to talk and express how you feel.

I will support you with the challenges you are facing and help you to explore the aspects of your life that you would like to look into to help you move forward.  I work in a way that is entirely client focussed and am friendly and approachable.

As an Integrative Counsellor I use a range of therapeutic approaches depending on you and what you would like counselling for.  I feel the therapeutic relationship is important.  

Are you are experiencing anxiety, suffering with low self-esteem, feelings of depression or sadness or have recently lost a loved one.  I provide a confidential and non-judgemental space for you to express how you really feel.  

I have experience of working in a hospice supporting carers of the bereaved and supporting terminally ill patients.

As a Registered Member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) I am bound by and adhere to the Ethical Framework for Counselling Professions.

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.
