About me

Being a therapist is what I am passionate about in life. I have been counselling children, young people and adults for the past 12 years. My approach is very much based on responding to a person’s needs. I will not judge you but will accept and respect you, whilst being honest with you. I see you as the one who knows what is hurting and aim to facilitate a way of working through this hurt together. I aim to build an honest and trusting relationship, one where you will feel comfortable to discuss and explore what is happening in your life.


I have the following relevant academic qualifications;

* MA in Counselling (2010)
* Diploma in Counselling (2005)
* BSc (Hons) Health Studies (2002)
* Cert. in Youth and Community Work (1999)

Professional body membership

I am a Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I adhere to the BACP Ethical framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.  You can view the Ethical Framework on the BACP website here.
