I am passionate about the benefits of therapy and the life changing impact counselling can provide you.
Life can be a challenging journey. Sometimes events have added to this challenge whether they be from our past or present day. Sometimes life itself can just feel difficult, overwhelming or out of control. Sometimes we just feel lost along the way.
I believe in the importance of a collaborative relationship between a therapist and a client. My aim is to work with you, to help you find your own answers in order to bring about positive changes in your life.
I am a professional experienced Counsellor, who provides individual therapy. I offer both brief focused and open ended support tailored to your needs.
I offer counselling for a variety of issues. I have listed some of the areas I specialise in:
- Sex Addition
- Identity Confusion
- Eating Disorders
- Relationship difficulties

In addition to Private Practice I work for a Counselling Centre supporting clients with a wide range of issues.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) and adhere to the BACPs Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
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.
