I am a qualified, experienced counsellor and have had my private practice since 2013. I am also a mental health volunteer for Futures in Mind and I run a support group for people struggling with mental illness or recovery from alcohol/drug misuse. I place trust and respect for my clients at the centre of all my work. By offering a confidential and healthy space, where my clients are truly listened to without judgement, we create a therapeutic alliance together. This enables growth and a deeper understanding and creates opportunities to move forward to a more content, congruent way of life.
Training, qualifications & experience
Being a fully qualified counsellor and Registered member of the BACP, I regularly partake in CPD (continued professional development), which keeps me up to date and refreshed about the theories, practice and therapies that are key to working successfully with my clients. Being a person-centred therapist, I encourage and support the client and guide the therapeutic process without interrupting or interfering with the client’s process of self-discovery.
I offer short term and long term counselling options, a limited number of concessionary spaces and I can be available day time and some evenings. I specialise in helping people with: obsessive thoughts, depression, anxiety, low self esteem.
The first step of making contact can feel quite daunting, so please feel free to simply email or text me, in confidence, if preferred. Alternatively you can call me for a discussion about your needs.

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.
