About me

I am an experienced counsellor working with to couples and individuals experiencing challenges in their lives and relationships. 

I provide a safe space where you can explore what you are feeling and what you want from life.  I have experience working with a wide range of people who face challenges such as understanding their sexuality, difficulty within their relationships and communication breakdowns often these challenges leave people feeling stuck and anxious or depressed. I provide a safe space to express yourself fully, explore your fears and really be heard without guilt or shame,  to help you move forward. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an experienced qualified psychodynamic counsellor and coach and am currently  completing a relational counselling  qualification with Relate.    Alongside this I have trained in many different ways of working so I can tailor how I work with people to whichever way works best for them them.  

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.
