About me

Are you feeling stuck in life or lost and do not know which way to turn? Maybe you are feeling hopeless or helpless and require some support? Do you isolate or surround yourself with others, and are feeling alone? Maybe you are on a healing journey or journey of self-discovery? Whatever it is that brings you to therapy at this time, it is likely that I can support you in some way. 

I have worked with a wide range of issues from anxiety through to trauma (sexual, racial and legacy), addictions, depression, relationship issues, including family estrangement and weight management as well as raising self-esteem and confidence. The depth and breadth of my training mean that I am able to work with almost every condition and issue, which I am able to do in a solution focused way. I can work with you for a set number of sessions or open ended.

Training, qualifications & experience

My style is warm, empathic and deeply soulful. I help you connect to yourself at the deepest level by providing a space where all of you and your experiences can be seen and heard. I work intuitively ensuring that the right questions are asked, and empower you to connect with a deeper internal knowing, strength and resolve. I can support you in gaining insights into your issues, and learn to identify and release existing patterns, beliefs and behaviours that no longer serve you. 

The likelihood is that if you feel drawn to working with me, I have either been through some similar issue or my experience means that I have the capacity to be able to empathise and support you fully. 

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.

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.
