About me

If you are reading this, I imagine you are experiencing some difficult issues in your life and you are seeking a counsellor.

It may be life has recently changed, new challenges have appeared, or you may have always felt life was difficult, and you need to explore issues that are causing you pain and making you feel unhappy.

It takes great strength to realise that life’s issues are becoming overwhelming, and together, we can explore your situation and help you understand yourself. 

Although I work with you holistically, our work together will be based on proven, highly respected counselling methods and theories that have been used, researched, and evaluated as effective for decades and are continually evolving. It matters that the work we do together makes a positive difference to your life.

I work with individuals and couples face-to-face and online. I am a qualified therapist and British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy member. Whatever your circumstances, counselling can provide self-awareness, a safe space and non-judgmental support to find a happier you.

I offer evening and weekend counselling sessions as I know daytime appointments are not always convenient for everyone.

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.
