About me

I am passionate about the benefits of therapy and the life changing impact counselling can provide you.

Life can be a challenging journey and sometimes we just feel lost along the way. Having someone who understands you and helps you make sense of what is troubling you, is the beginning of change.

I believe in the importance of a collaborative relationship. 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.

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Stress
  • Loss
  • Grief
  • Sex Addition
  • Identity Confusion
  • Eating Disorders
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Sexual Abuse

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
