About me

Life can feel overwhelming at times and it can be hard to find the way forward. It might be that anxiety is stopping you from enjoying life, relationships are problematic, you’re not thriving at work, or elements of your past leave you feeling low, confused, dissatisfied or stuck. 

Talking to a therapist, someone outside your circle of family and friends who is trained to work with life’s problems, is often a catalyst for change. It takes courage, but by facing your difficulties alongside someone who is supportive and fully attuned to you, you can find new perspectives and unlock the door to a happier, more fulfilling future.

My aim is always to provide a warm, empathetic, trusting and non-judgemental space in which you feel truly heard and safe to talk openly and honestly about personal issues. I will work together with you, providing a safe and supportive environment in which self-acceptance, change and growth become possible.

I’m an Integrative Counsellor which means I draw on more than one theoretical approach. This allows me to be flexible, recognising the needs of each unique individual I'm working with. Counselling can be short or long term depending on each client’s needs, and this is something we can discuss along the way.

I work with adults on issues including:  

Low self-esteem
Relationship problems                                                                        Addiction/addictive behaviours
Career issues
Depression and low mood
Loss, illness and life changes. 
Lack of purpose/dissatisfaction with life     

Please contact me for a free initial conversation, where you'll be able to ask any questions you might have about the process. Then, if you feel ready to, we can arrange a first session.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling

Registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychology (BACP). 

BACP Certificate of proficiency

I also have a BA Hons in English with Social Science and a Diploma (LTCL) from Trinity College of Music

I have worked as a counsellor for a number of agencies and charities. Currently, alongside my private practice, I work as a bereavement counsellor, helping people who are coming to terms with grief and loss.

My learning is ongoing, as I continually work to develop and deepen my knowledge and experience through further professional training.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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).
