About me

I understand that seeking therapy can be an uncertain and challenging process and the continuing changes we face in life means the world we live in can bring many challenges.

Deciding to seek counselling enables you to have the space and time to really work on yourself and the issues you are facing. It is the first step towards a new you and with the right intervention’s I believe every individual can become a stronger version of themselves.

About Me

I am a qualified (PC) Person-Centred Counsellor and (CBT) Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. Registered member of (BACP) working within the BACP framework and working toward accreditation, I undergo regular supervision which is part of the BACP requirements.

My experience is primarily working with children, young people and families for over twenty years. I have also worked with adults enhancing my experience in counselling.

Having both Person Centred and CBT experience gives me the skills to offer an integrative approach with you the client exploring your needs in a safe, non-judgemental professional way building a relationship together being part of the therapeutic process.

Person Centred is a talking therapy giving you the opportunity to explore and express your thoughts and feelings to find a way forward that is best for you, as your counsellor I am not there to tell you what to do but to support you in searching for your answers.

CBT is a therapy to help you develop change, we will work together to look at your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, how these interlink, understanding this can develop a new mindset for you to work on so helping you make those changes you are looking for in life. CBT is a therapy that looks at issues such as anxiety, depression, phobias and panic disorders CBT is directive, you need to be fully focused and onboard to complete tasks outside the session to enable you to develop within the therapy.

I am dedicated and passionate about my role as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist and with this in mind, I feel that you are the centre of the therapy. Working together we can explore emotions and issues you bring to counselling, empowering you to engage and work through the therapy toward a better you.

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.
