About me

Welcome to my profile. Are you feeling overwhelmed by your thoughts and feelings?  Do you struggle to manage the roles you have in life or your relationships with partners, parents, children or friends?  Counselling can help explore all of these things within a confidential environment. I am privileged to be able to offer such a space to help you explore your feelings and feel more in control.

I offer face to face counselling in a non-judgemental, confidential environment. Sessions give you the space to explore what is important to you, how often can any of us say we do that?  I believe each person if given the correct conditions, is able to gain greater self awareness and insight into their situation.  In addition, I integrate other knowledge, skills and experience to best suit what you wish to gain from counselling.

I have worked with both adults and children with a wide range of issues including anxiety, low self-esteem, work related stress, trauma, relationship difficulties and bereavement.  If there is something in your life that doesn't feel quite right then why not get in touch.

Counselling really is the ultimate in self care, if you had a niggle with your physical health your wouldn't ignore it, so why not give your mental well-being the same importance and respect.

I am a member of the BACP (British Association Counselling and Psychotherapy) and adhere to their Code of Ethics, I have an enhanced DBS check and am fully insured.

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.
