About me

Hello and welcome to my profile. It may take courage to engage in counselling but it can be a journey of self-discovery. Everyone deserves to be heard with compassion without the fear of being judged or criticised.

Whether you are dealing with major life changes, feeling emotionally or mentally unstable or feeling generally dissatisfied with life, you're well being and specific needs are paramount to explore avenues for change and make sense of what's happening.

As a counsellor, I feel privileged to be given the opportunity and trust from clients to share their innermost feelings and explore their problems. I am a Person-Centred Counsellor. My core model is CBT Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. I work ethically within the BACP guidelines in an integrative way adapting my therapy to suit the needs of the client focusing on building a trusting therapeutic relationship, promoting positive thinking to enhance the quality of life. I offer counselling to adults teenagers and couples. I also have experience working with children in play therapy.

I offer counselling at affordable prices in a safe calm comfortable space with wheelchair access. I have worked with clients with a broad range off issues including bereavement, self-esteem, mental health, anxiety, depression, relationship issues. I deliver long and short term therapy.

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.

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.
