About me

Have you had enough of feeling overwhelmed, anxious and depressed ? Would you like help to explore your worries and concerns ? 

I help people suffering with depression, anxiety, low self esteem and a variety of other issues. You and I can explore what is causing you to feel this way in a warm and non judgmental way. I provide private, professional, and personal counselling either face to face or online, from a discreet and private space. Your initial consultation is free and the frequency of your sessions is up to you.

If you are looking for friendly counselling support to help you through difficult times, please get in touch.

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.
