My practice is about working with you as a whole person.
That means helping you to understand your past, and how it may inform your present, to enable you to have the future you choose.
Life events and emotional stress or pain can sometimes feel overwhelming and difficult to hold on our own. That is where a trained counsellor can help.
Sometimes the root causes of your distress are evident and clear, othertimes they are more complex and require deeper exploration
I choose to work in a collaborative way and that means that together we will explore your issues and determine your way forward.
I offer a confidential, supportive space for you to feel free to explore your issues, worries, hopes and fears.
Training, qualifications & experience
- Professional Diploma in Counselling (BACP Accredited) awarded by the University of the West of England

I have worked in a variety of settings including working with young people, working with addictions and also working with adults experiencing life changing experiences such as divorce or redundancy.
I work with people from the business sector and have experience counselling and life coaching around issues such as harassment, bullying, changes at work and work related stress and anxiety.
My aim is to help you find your own inner resources to empower you to move forward positively.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.

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).
