I offer face-to-face, online and telephone sessions.
A risk assessment has been undertaken and procedures have been put in place to ensure that Government guidelines are adhered to in relation to COVID-19 safety measures.
I welcome enquiries from new clients.
I work with individuals of all ages, offering both short and long-term therapy. My approach is integrative, which means that I am trained in several different modalities, allowing me to work in a way that suits each unique client.
I offer a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space for clients to explore their thoughts and feelings and believe that the therapeutic relationship is a fundamental part of the therapy process.
I have experience working with clients from different backgrounds and with a wide range of presenting issues.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
