About me and my practice

I set out on my journey to become a counsellor after my own transformative experiences in therapy. I learned how talking to a professional removed from your everyday life can be incredibly beneficial. I realised I wanted to give people the same hope, respect, and unconditional support that I had received. We will work towards uncovering your inner strengths, embracing your journey, and ultimately, achieving the positive changes you seek.

I want to emphasise that your uniqueness is respected and welcomed here. We can look at how your personal experiences intersect with your identity factors such as your gender, sexual and relationship diversity, as well as social background, age, religion, ethnicity, ability, neurodiversity, health, heritage, education, and political beliefs. Some people find online counselling an accessible way to bring parts of themselves they mask in wider society.

We can use Zoom (a secure video platform) for our online counselling, meaning you can benefit from being in your own home (or perhaps car) for our sessions. Some people like the comfort of a pet or a soothing drink to hand. Zoom is user-friendly, works on phones, laptops, and tablets, and is encrypted end to end.

Alternatively, you may prefer using a telephone for our therapy sessions which relies less on good internet connections and may reduce anxiety for some people who are not keen on using a camera.

I also offer email therapy using ProtonMail which is highly secure and confidential (and also free to use). Some people may prefer email therapy as the slower pace allows for reflection and considered responses, it also enables you to write at a time that suits you.


I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Counselling Professionals. I am also a Level 2 Professional Member of the Association for Counselling & Therapy Online (ACTO). This means I take great care my online counselling work is professional, with sincere respect for you. Confidentiality is a priority, as is my commitment to providing you with a safe and ethically sound place for you to talk. I keep up to date with the latest research and training and abide by all legislation such as how to keep your data secure.
