About me

I am an experienced and professional counsellor in Tamworth and a registered member of BACP.

I offer a safe and supportive space to talk in complete confidence and help you understand emotional and behavioural issues or problems that may be troubling you: anxiety, relationship difficulties, depression, grief, abuse, self confidence, eating and much more; and to find the best solution to move forward and bring about change in your life.

I aim to work with each client to offer a therapy which is tailor-made to fit my clients needs and wants [integrative counselling.]

I have always been strongly committed to my professional development and continue to attend workshops and training in order to extend my knowledge.

I am a registered member of BACP and as a committed professional I work within their ethical guidelines to ensure I practise ethically, effectively and safely.  I engage in ongoing supervision with a registered counselling supervisor.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a postgraduate qualification from university in Integrative Counselling Practice.  Prior to qualifying from university I achieved AQA Certificates in Counselling Skills.

I have worked in a number of different settings. Alongside developing a private counselling practice, I have worked for three days a week in a GP surgery since 2007. I have carried the responsibility for their counselling service largely on my own, which means that I have worked with an extremely broad range of clients who have presented with a wide range of issues and problems.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
