About me

I am integrative counsellor providing a confidential, non-judgemental environment in which healing and change can take place.

Increased self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-compassion occurs naturally for all of us when we feel safe, listened to and understood. I draw on different approaches, so I can work with you in the way that best meets your needs in the moment. Through sensitive and gradual exploration of your problems, we can work towards resolving conflict and finding your own inner peace.

I’ve had a rich and diverse range of experiences in my own life, all of which have allowed me to grow both personally and professionally. This has led me to the guiding belief that within the pain of our most challenging times lies the opportunity for healing and transformation. Whatever you are experiencing in your life I can help and support you on your own journey of self-discovery and positive growth.


I offer flexible working arrangements in the form of weekly or fortnightly sessions, these can be online or face to face, short term or long term as appropriate.
I work with adults and young people 12+. I can support you with depression, anxiety, loss, grief, life transitions, relationship problems, trauma and panic attacks.

Member organisations

BACP
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.
