About me

For many years I have ran a dynamic, challenging and supportive practice in which clients are encouraged to get in touch with their own thinking, feelings and behaviours.

What do I know for sure, well I know that taking the decision to enter into counselling is brave and often anxiety producing. You are entering into a process with a relative stranger which will hopefully help you to understand and confront the difficulty you are experiencing. The process is confidential. challenging, deeply insightful and can underpin and support change. As a therapist, I am fully aware that opening up and revealing yourself in therapy can make a client feel exposed and vulnerable and I work very closely to build a strong, trusting relationship of respect 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.
