About me

Please note - I am able to offer sessions until end of Jan 2021 only.

Sometimes life can be challenging and we find ourselves feeling overwhelmed or lost in thoughts. Anxiety, depression, worry, fear, anger, stress, to name a few, can trouble us and make us feel like we are not in the place we wish to be. Sometimes having an understanding of ourselves and showing ourselves compassion can help us to see clearer and start a new outlook on life and the issues we face. Past experiences, trauma and other difficulties can be safely explored through therapy. Maybe you need a helping hand and a safe place to explore? I can help.

As an integrative therapist, I use a variety of approaches to help you and meet your needs. One size does not fit all! I work to build a therapeutic relationship so we can work together with trust, care and safety. Together we can explore your experiences, thoughts and feelings. I have worked with young people, families and adults with a range of issues.

I understand that taking the first step to reach out for help can be scary. It may just be the bravest thing you ever do. I would like to reassure you that I am here to help you. Life is not always easy but you are not alone. Together we can walk the uncertain roads ahead and you can feel my non judgemental, empathic and genuine care and support.

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.
