About me

My training was in Humanistic counselling whose ethos is optimism about human nature.  Its belief is that everyone has the potential to grow, given the right conditions.  Part of my counselling is about providing some of those conditions. I hold current Professional Indemnity Insurance.

Humanistic counselling encompasses theories such as Person Centred, Gestalt, Psychosynthesis and Transactional Analysis (TA). I also use Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT) which forms part of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) since attending an Albert Ellis workshop in 2002 in Manhattan at the Albert Ellis Institute.

More recently I use mindfulness in my practice, which has helped many clients to find more balance and restore their equilibrium.
I now work as an integrative counsellor.

The work I have done with clients has been both long and short term presenting with many different concerns including but not limited to:

  • Abuse
    • Emotional
    • Physical
    • Sexual
  • Addiction
  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Depression
  • Self harm
  • Self injury
  • Trauma & PTSD


Trained and qualified with 11 years experience, I have worked in a multitude of settings, such as the NHS, Private Psychiatric hospital, educational setting and private practice, and am a registered member of the BACP.

I offer a safe, professional and confidential service for clients where I work in accordance with the Ethical Framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). http://www.bacp.co.uk/

I have been teaching counselling in Further Education (FE) establishments since 2009, originally in FE colleges but since 2015 in my own training company.
