About me

I am an experienced Integrative Counsellor, Therapist, Supervisor and Trainer and work intuitively, interactively and creatively with adults, young people, couples and groups. 

With over 28 years of experience, I offer One to One Counselling; One to One Anger Management; Domestic Violence Therapy; LGBTQIA+ Counselling; Couple Work; Group Work; Training and Supervision for qualified Counsellors and Trainees.

I offer a safe confidential setting to talk about the issues that may concern you, whether it is a current problem or something unresolved from your past.

I work in an open-ended way, which is not time limited and means I can commit to working with you for as long as we both feel it is constructive.

I work in a non-judgemental way, and believe that the key to change is in the relationships I make with my clients.

My aim is to offer a respectful, and a sometimes challenging environment in which you can explore the issues that are important to you. Encouraging greater self-awareness, change and personal development.

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.
