About me

Are you a survivor of childhood abuse? Are you currently experiencing domestic violence? Do you not like what you see when you look in the mirror? Would you just like to feel 'happier'?

If you have answered yes to any of the questions above, or if there is anything else you have going on in your life right now that you would like to speak with someone about, get in touch.

Long-term, short-term and time-limited (a set number of sessions) counselling and psychotherapy are available covering a large range of issues.

Your therapeutic experience with me will be confidential, supportive and empowering. You will learn how to use your power from within to move on from past trauma and deal with future challenges that life has a habit of throwing at us.

In addition to the 'traditional' talking therapy, you will also use creativity, imagery and learn to hear what your physical body is telling you, in addition to other techniques. These will all help you to become more self-aware, find your inner strength and become a Soulja!

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.
