About me

I continue to offer Skype/Zoom/Facetime and telephone counselling alongside offering meeting in person.

As a person-centred psychotherapist and counsellor with 17 years of counselling experience, I offer a secure, welcoming and confidential space in which you can be understood and valued.  Together we will reflect upon and explore your particular challenges with a view to making sense of how things have come to be as they are.  I hope to help you become un-stuck and to help you feel able to take part fully in life once again. 

I work in a person-centred way with adults with a broad range of experiences including relationship issues, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobias, anger management, family issues, addiction(s), separation/divorce, bereavement, eating disorders, abuse, low self-esteem, stress and low self-confidence. I also offer counselling supervision (see supervision profile).

I practice from village of Hayfield in the High Peak (10 miles from Buxton, 5 miles from Glossop) in the Peak District National Park.

Outdoor Therapy Additionally I offer outdoor therapy in Hayfield which lies in the heart of the Peak District and in the foothills of Kinder Scout.

I welcome your contact by phone or email to decide where and when we might meet to work with your particular challenges.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at The Sherwood Institute in Nottingham and hold a Masters research degree in Humanistic Person-Centred Psychotherapy. I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Supervision and I also hold a BA (Hons) in Philosophy.  Additionally I hold a Certificate in Ecotherapy. 

I have experience working with adults in a variety of settings and have focused experience working with adult carers and women experiencing distress and challenge. Alongside my private work, I have worked for Breast Cancer Care facilitating a support group for women living with secondary breast cancer and I have both lectured and tutored on the University of Salford's Counselling and Psychotherapy BSc and MSc courses.

​I have a particular interest in taking therapy outside and have completed extensive training in this area.  Outdoor Therapy allows for an alternative means of therapeutic exploration and facilitates a wide spectrum of related insight. 

I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and a member of the BACP and as such adhere to associated codes of ethics.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
