About me

Do you need a space where you can feel heard, valued and seen? I can off a safe, reflective space whilst building an open and honest therapeutic relationship to achieve your needs, goals and desires from therapy whilst managing your fears and expectations. Creating a therapeutic environment with respect, non-judgement, empathy and compassion, I believe will help support you on your journey of healing from within. For me, the only way to work is embracing your uniqueness and giving you the space and control to work effectively together at your pace, in a way that suits you best. We could work with multiple theories, skills and creative techniques that could benefit your approach to learning and self-development. This means that my approach will mirror your uniqueness so that together we could help you regain confidence, control and power in your life. 

Having therapy, myself, I have recognised the importance of feeling heard and listened to whilst I try to figure out solutions to my problems. I can offer both Integrative and Creative arts therapy (working with image) in the formats of online, phone via voice or video call and face to face. Additionally, I can also offer walk and talk therapy sessions in a suitable and safe location for us both. Walk & Talk therapy is offered seasonally from April-September with one of the other options from October through to March. 

If you feel you would like to make contact, please call or email to set up a free 15-minute phone call and then an assessment session if you would like to continue. Here we will discuss what your goals are for counselling, how you would like to work within the sessions, what counselling may look like for you, if you would like to continue and answer any questions you may have. It's important for me to state here that you may not know how you want this to work or what you need yet and that is ok. The initial session is to have a talk, get to know each other, understand the boundaries of a therapeutic relationship and get to start knowing a sense of you.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

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.
