About me

I provide a warm, non-judgemental, confidential space in which you can safely express your feelings and any troubles you may face, including depression, anxiety, loss, grief, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, and other issues.

I believe that we are all unique and draw on various counselling approaches to find the one that suits each client. 

Having experienced the benefits of counselling personally, I aim to provide a safe place for others to experience the same benefits through the counselling relationship, which can help people discover solutions to their issues.

The counselling process is a journey I commit to with each client along their journey until they are ready to go it alone. I offer short and long-term therapy.

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.

Further information

What to expect in your first session.

Seeking counselling can feel daunting, especially if you're not used to discussing your feelings and thoughts with others. The idea of discussing these with a stranger can feel scary. This is why the first session together is essential; we can get to know each other and gently explore what concerns you and what you would like to accomplish from having counselling.
Our first session together will allow you to decide whether you feel comfortable with me and my way of working and whether you’d like to continue your journey with me.

How long will we work together?
I offer short-term and long-term therapy; the length of therapy depends on what you feel you need, which we will discuss in our first session together.


As a member of the BACP, my work is governed by their ethical framework, and as part of my work towards accreditation, I must participate in regular continued professional development. This ensures my skills and knowledge is kept up to date, allowing me to provide the best support in our work together, professionally and ethically. I must also participate in regular supervision in which I have the chance to discuss any areas of concern confidentially and to seek advice on how to help my clients best. 

Terms and conditions

Before our initial consultation, I will give you a copy of my Terms and Conditions and therapy agreement. These follow the BACP guidelines and will include details of my cancellation policy, the timing of sessions, and the official complaints procedure.
