Each and every one of us will at some point in our lives face difficulties and challenges that we find hard to deal with – be that experiencing periods of feeling ‘stuck’, anxious, depressed, low or angry; experiencing conflicts in our relationships with others, suffering a loss; or being impacted by past events which still affect how we cope with life today.
How Counselling Can Help
Through my counselling skills, I can work with you to help you identify, face, and overcome those feelings and issues that you may be struggling to navigate on your own, in a safe and collaborative environment.
I have considerable experience in dealing with clients with a wide range of differing needs and achieving excellent results and client feedback.
I am insightful, trustworthy, warm and understanding.
Having had a difficult childhood and having sought therapeutic help to guide me through its repercussions, I have experienced the benefits counselling offers first-hand.
The transformative power of therapy enhanced my resilience and increased my self-awareness. The work I have done on myself, with the support of my therapists, has really paid off, as I now feel much happier and fulfilled. I want to help others benefit from therapy as much as I have done.
I am an integrative counsellor and draw on a wide range of counselling approaches to achieve results. I work empathically with my clients in the belief that, with the right help, each person can fulfil their potential and achieve their goals.
Training, qualifications & experience

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.
