About me

Life's challenges can sometimes leave us feeling unsettled, overwhelmed and in need of some help. It may be a past issue that has not yet felt comfortable to deal with or something you are dealing with right now. I am passionate about supporting people through these difficult times offering them the opportunity to  share and explore how their world feels for them.

I am a fully qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I offer a warm, safe and non judgemental space for us to work with any issues or difficulties you bring. I am able to listen and support you in our time together, recognising what your individual needs are whilst working towards any resolutions or aims you may have. We will work collaboratively at a pace which feels comfortable for you.

I work as an integrative counsellor which means I have studied different approaches to counselling including Person Centred, CBT and Psychotherapeutic this allows me to best support your individual needs. I work relationally with individuals to build therapeutic, trusting relationship supporting them in their personal growth.

I have experience in working with a wide range of difficulties including, Anxiety, Panic, Depression, Self harm, loss and Relationship issues. Alongside private practice I also work for a young person's charity and within a secondary school supporting young people in their experiences.

Please contact me via phone/email to arrange a free no obligation discussion. If you decide I am the right counsellor for you we can arrange a mutually convenient time to meet on a weekly basis. How long we work together depends on your needs. I offer both short term and long term counselling.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
