About me

If you're finding life difficult to navigate, know that we can all go through periods in life when things become hard to manage. Therapy can be so helpful. It helps you make sense of what's happening and helps you find new ways to deal with things with understanding and insight.

As a fully qualified CBT therapist,  I work with anxiety disorders and depression with proven, targeted and effective interventions.  However I find that many of my clients also suffer from low self-esteem and lack of self worth which I work with using compassion and acceptance.

My approach to therapy is to work on three layers:

  • Immediate help working with tools and tactics to help with the current day-to-day.
  • Work with you on gaining insight and understanding on your thoughts, behaviours, emotion and body.
  • Supporting you as you move from this point of emotional pain towards acceptance or change.

I work to provide a warm, safe place for you to explore your issues with no judgement.  A place where you can make sense of the past, navigate the present and welcome your future.

I am a LGBTQIA ally and continue to dedicate a proportion of my practice to this community. I also have experience working with neuro diverse clients, especially young adults.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • SCOTACS - Diploma in Counselling & Groupwork
  • COSCA - Counselling Skills Certificate
  • BA - Psychology

I work with adults, 17+.

I have experience working with LGBTQIA including trans and non-binary clients.

I have experience working with neuro diverse adults - adults with autism and ADHD.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
