About me

Are you are going through a difficult time in your life, feeling overwhelmed but pretending to be fine?

Do you have a difficult decision to make and you don’t know what to do?

Perhaps you are you struggling to see a hopeful future?

I am here to offer you emotional support and help you find a way through. I offer a relaxed place where you are able to be honest about your thoughts and feelings. Together we can explore what is on your mind and how you are feeling, without any judgement.

I am experienced in working with people experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship issues and loss and bereavement.

Additionally, I am experienced in infertility counselling and I am a member of the British Infertility Counselling Association (BICA). I am very aware of the emotional, physical, relationship and financial difficulties that are often felt when experiencing infertility and I can support you on your fertility journey.

It may feel difficult finding the right counsellor and I would like to make that a little easier for you by offering a free introductory phone call. We can discuss what brings you to counselling, what you hope to get from our sessions and how we will work together.

I offer reduced rates to counselling students - please contact me for further information.

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.
