About me

Hi, thanks for taking the time to view my profile. I am a fully qualified integrative cognitive-behavioural therapist. Looking at my profile means that you probably feel you need help with the mental challenges you face.

Amongst many things, I can help you with:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress Management

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) will help you understand the relationship between your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. By building awareness of yourself, we can work alongside the concept of understanding your problem to help manage it. CBT helps you identify situations in your life that trigger unwanted thoughts and feelings which allows you to start the process of feeling better.

The next step is learning how you can manage your thoughts and feelings by exploring different solutions. Using techniques that I teach you; you will be able to live a more fulfilled and happy life, which moves you towards what you value and goals you may have.

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.

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

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.
