About me

Are you feeling overwhelmed, lost or alone in the world? Does it feel as though elements of your life are a struggle, leaving you unsure of where to turn? These feelings can have an ongoing negative impact on our wellbeing leaving us feeling anxious or depressed. I believe that given the right conditions and support, everyone has the ability to live their best life and become the person they want to be. However, for many of us our experiences throughout life have created barriers making it difficult for us to reach our full potential.

Maybe you have lost touch with the person you used to be and need a helping hand to fully engage with the person you wish to be. Counselling can be the first step to removing the barriers which hold you back and prevent you from taking the path you were intended to follow.

I offer a caring and non-judgmental, safe space in which to explore the elements of your life which are causing you difficulty. I will be alongside you with whatever you bring to counselling and together we will find your route forward to a happier, more fulfilled life.

Contact me today for a free no-obligation 20 minute telephone consultation and we can discuss any issues you may have and your expectations of therapy.

Member organisations


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.
