I work on a one to one basis and my work is primarily person-centred. This means I believe that giving someone the opportunity to explore their thoughts and feelings in a comfortable, safe, and non judgmental space can really lead to understanding and accepting of self, help confidence grow, resolve past issues, as well as highlighting a way forward.
I work in accordance with the BACP ethical framework and have regular supervision to ensure I can offer you the best practice.
Please note that due the COVID19 restrictions I am currently offering one to one sessions through telephone counselling, Skype, or Zoom.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have had several years of experience working with people who have suffered from addictions of many forms (Alcohol, gambling, sex, drugs). These addictions are usually a symptom of underlying issues.
As part of the LGBTQ+ community I understand some of the difficulties and challenges many of us face, and am passionate about working within the community to help.
I have also worked with a wide range of complex issues including loss and grief, relationship issues, work related issues, and many others.
I also have experience both professionally and personally with depression and anxiety.
I have qualifications and experience of working with clients both on the telephone and face to face.
I have experience in working with people short term, with solution focused therapy, and also long term explorative therapy.

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.
