I am a fully qualified Professional Counsellor. Following the completion of a BSc (hons) Degree in Psychology, I obtained a BACP recognised Diploma in Counselling. I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society. I belong to the accredited register recognized by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. I am currently working towards achieving full BACP accreditation by seeing clients in private practice.

Within my professional practice I demonstrate sensitivity to individual differences when working with clients of diverse ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation and cultural background, treating all people with unconditional positive regards and respect.

I work holistically with the individual, acknowledging the complexity of being human, as I believe that people are more than their diagnosis. I have the ability to work with clients with complex needs experiencing emotional and psychological unbalance.

I believe people have all the necessary resources within themselves to fully recover and achieve their goals in life. My role is to facilitate self awareness and inner exploration. Mindfulness is a key concept in my work with client. It is only by accepting ourselves fully for who we are that the changes we are longing for will occur naturally.
