About me

I am a BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) qualified counsellor, working to the BACP's ethical standards.

I can support you in exploring and resolving emotional issues such as low-self esteem, inner child issues, anxiety, depression, bereavement & loss, relationship issues, etc. I work with adults as well as children.

My practice is grounded in the person-centered approach.  This ensures I offer a safe, non-judgemental space where we will work holistically and spiritually (not religiously), however, to take in mindfulness and everything to do with 'the self.'  Emotional wellbeing is important to me as I believe it underpins authentic living.

Each life path is unique. Counselling is about change and shifting perspectives and we will work to gain insight into your issue and at your pace.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
