About me

There are times in life when we all experience 'problems with living' which we don't seem to be able to handle on our own. 

I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor working in Private practice.  I provide a safe place from which to move on in life - to explore, discover and experience your journey of life with greater understanding, meaning and awareness. 

I work with a variety of problems including depression, anxiety, bereavement, separation, loss, relationships, personal development and self-esteem, phobias, addictions and work-related issues.

I am passionate about individual potential and the creative inner strengths that bring about change, particularly working towards self-awareness, acceptance and healing.

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and am bound by their Ethical Code of Practice.

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.
