About me

Do any of these apply to you? ​ You feel lost, confused and don’t know which way to turn? You feel alone, lonely with no one to talk with? You feel sad, depressed and don’t know how to feel better? You feel anxious, stressed and life feels overwhelming?

People need therapy for all sorts of reasons. Life events both past and present can be difficult and hard to deal with alone. It takes great courage to ask for help. I am a Counsellor with 19 years of experience and have worked passionately with clients to help them recover. I will offer you compassion and allow you to talk openly and not feel judged.

I work with those experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, domestic violence, loss, grief and trauma. I also counsel young people, adults and work with couples in conflict or couples who want to strengthen their relationship. I am also a certified Grief Recovery Specialist working with various losses such as loved ones, jobs, relationships and pets.

Now is your time to finally reach out for your recovery. During counselling sessions with me, you will be able to explore difficult issues and develop ways to cope, heal and be more resilient. Give me a call as I offer a free 30-minute initial consultation to explore how I can best help you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
