Has it been a while since you've felt good? Maybe you feel sad, anxious or frustrated. It’s affecting your relationships with friends and family. If this has left you feeling stuck, therapy can help. Whatever it is, big or small, we can talk about it together, in a supportive and confidential space where you will be free from judgement and accepted as you are.
How therapy can help you
As an experienced and qualified counsellor, I will give you a space where you can talk openly with a compassionate listener. As we go on this journey together, exploring your thoughts, feelings and experiences, you begin to:
- Discover something new about yourself, or see past experiences in a different light.
- Let go of old patterns and beliefs that are no longer serving you well
- Discover new ways of being opening up new choice and possibilities.
How I work
I believe we are all unique individuals. It’s this philosophy that has led me to train as an integrative counsellor as there is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. I draw from a range of therapeutic approaches to work in a way that suits you best.
My lived experience and specialist training has led to me working successfully with clients from diverse communities who are not accepted for who they are. This can make relationships with family members, friends, or work colleagues challenging. This conflict may have left you feeling depressed, anxious or angry. I can offer you an inclusive and warm space to help you make sense of your experience and together we can explore ways to develop your confidence and resilience to live a better life.

I am a registered member of the BACP and a fully insured counsellor.
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 membership
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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I work with artists and professionals in the music and entertainment industries struggling with their mental health. Before I retrained as a counsellor, I spent 21 years working in the music industry as a PR for musicians. I am able to use my therapeutic training and my first-hand experience of these complex industries to support you with your mental health and wellbeing.
