I am a counsellor and psychotherapist workng with adults and young people, (currently engaged as an honorary counsellor at the University of Surrey) as well as counselling couples and individuals suffering from a range of mental health issues including depression, anxiety, stress and relational problems. I recognise the day to day challenges of relationships that can lead to unwarranted feelings of self doubt, inadequacy or failure.
Addiction, self harming and suicidal thoughts are sympathetically met in the provision of a safe space for open expression.
I utilise the Humanistic approach to counselling, valuing a client’s innate ability to self heal through talking therapy; a process which brings to the surface the trauma, feelings and experiences from where emotional problems may stem.
Additionally, I have a special interest in those who may have suffered spiritual abuse/loss through affiliation to organised religious groups as well as having a keen interest in those who feel on the periphery of social and cultural society due to migration or difference.
My clients are offered the respect, dignity and confidentiality endorsed through adherence to the ethical guidelines of the BACP.

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.

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).
