I love what I do and am genuinely interested, engaged and supportive throughout our journey together. I have a passion for helping people and seeing the positive impact therapy has on my clients’ lives is the very best part of my job. My clients tell me I am easy to talk to and have a good sense of humour which they find so helpful, especially when things are tough.
My experience is diverse and I can support you to overcome a wide range of distressing problems. I have also developed some specialist areas of interest through training and experience such as:
- Low confidence and self-esteem
- Panic Attacks
- Relationship difficulties
- Depression and low mood
- Marital and family issues
- Traumatic experiences
- Bereavement and loss
- Work Stress
- Disordered eating
I am on your side and offer a safe, accepting, non-judgemental connection to help you find your way forward – your way.

I am a fully qualified registered counsellor with The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) who are a UK professional association for psychotherapy and counselling. I adhere to its ethical framework and good practice. I hold full indemnity professional insurance.
I have an up to date disclosure and barring services (DBS) certificate.
As well as working in private practice, I provide therapy as a volunteer at a charity supporting individuals whose loved ones have addictions. I have also been a Samaritans listener for a number of years.
Additionally, I have provided therapy on a voluntary basis specifically supporting men’s mental health and wellbeing. I believe it is so important to create an environment that helps men to access support and be open about their thoughts and feelings.
