About me

Life can be challenging at times. 

Our ability to deal with these challenges depends on how we view ourselves and the world around us. We might find ourselves feeling overwhelmed or stuck. At times like this, talking to a trained, experienced counsellor can help us focus on areas of our life that require our attention and illuminate the path that will enable us to move forward.

I work with individuals and couples and have experience working with a range of issues, such as trauma, low self-worth/ self-esteem, depression, anxiety, anger, loss, grief, lack of trust, domestic abuse, infidelity, sexual abuse, relationship issues, suicidal thoughts and self-harm. This list is not exhaustive and I believe that we are all unique and react to life’s challenges differently, so whatever has brought you to therapy, rest assured that I will provide a supportive space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings without fear of judgement.

In this confidential and accepting environment, you will have the opportunity to discuss any difficulties you may be experiencing and we can work together to help you develop better coping strategies, create positive change and enhance personal growth and overall wellbeing. My goal is to help you heal from your pain, grow from your struggles, become aware of your inner strengths and move forward to where you want to be in your life.

I'm happy to have a brief conversation on the phone or online, at no cost, where I may be able to answer any questions you might have about counselling, the way I work, or something else that might help you decide on your next step into counselling.

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.
