Qualifications & Affiliations.

Before retraining to become a counsellor I had a widely varied work life which has given me a great depth of knowledge and experience. I am a qualified integrative counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, and abide by their code of ethics. I am currently completing a level 5 certificate in working with young people.

Making the decision to see a counsellor is a big step to take - but it can be a positive one. Learn more about my sessions here.


Counselling takes place in a safe space, where you can meet with someone who will listen with sensitivity and empathy - and without judgement. In the therapy space thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and in confidence.


Trouble with a relationship; anxiety or panic attacks; mood swings or depression - many people face difficulties in their everyday lives that can be hard to get on top of. Counselling gives us a set of tools we can use to help gain a better understanding of what’s causing these problems - and how you can move towards managing or resolving them.


Working together I can help you gain greater insight into the difficulties you are facing, help you understand why you act or react to them the way you do, and see how you can start to make better, healthier choices moving forward.
