We  have over ten years experience and a proven track record of our success rate with our clients and we will support them throughout the entire journey of change

Counselling can help you with those difficult times in life when you need to resolve a problem which is stopping you from achieving your personal best. As therapists, we believe that there is no problem that cannot be resolved to your satisfaction and there are no limits to what can be achieved within counselling.

We believe that the relationship between therapist and client can be a vehicle for growth.

Together, we can explore how events of the past, often from childhood, have contributed to your current situation. This process will promote emotional growth at your own pace. This will also help you to gain greater self-awareness, increase your esteem and help you to understand the relationship with yourself and others. This process will create a sense of inner peace and enable you to understand your emotions and gain more self-identify.

We specialise in issues associated with:

Stress / Anxiety / Panic attacks


Couple therapy

Childhood related issues

Low self-esteem

Marriage, Couple & Relationship Therapy 

Whether you are in a personal dilemma or relationship crisis, we can help you change the future of your relationship. 

Couple therapy will help you understand yourself better in relation to your partner, the relationship dynamic, and explore what keeps you stuck – which often involves recurring patterns from the past.

Choosing the right therapist is highly essential; that is why we offer a free 15-minute initial telephone consultation so that you have a clear idea of the therapeutic process and how we work.

Managing Arguments and Conflict 

Affairs /Infidelity

Member organisations *

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.

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.


In person

I provide supervision for trainees, qualified counsellors and other mental health professionals.
