About me

Life is in a constant state of flux and sometimes difficult adjustments need to be made. I offer a comfortable, safe environment where I hope you will feel supported, valued and listened to. A place where you can discuss and explore the difficulties and concerns that you are facing.

As an integrative counsellor, I am able to draw on a range of therapeutic approaches that consider your individual needs and your personal circumstances.  I have a specialism in bereavement and loss, however I also work with a range of issues that may have an impact on your daily life.

I offer long or short-term therapy for adults over the phone and online counselling.

As a registered member of the BACP, I adhere to the BACP code of ethics.  As required I attend regular supervision, hold professional indemnity insurance, and continue to broaden my knowledge through continued professional development.

Member organisations


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.
