About me

I am an integrative therapist that qualified in 2008 and I’ve worked with a wide range of clients with diverse presenting issues. I also have 12 years experience of working with adults presenting with historic, childhood sexual abuse. I am fully insured and have regular supervision.

I have a passion to help those who feel defeated, but haven't quite learnt the tools to overcome.

Not everybody is the same and therefore each person is treated as a unique individual using a variety of modalities. These will be tailored to suit you according to your needs.

The working alliance (counselling relationship) is very important to me as this is key in helping to achieve your goals. I therefore initially use the Person Centred approach to create a safe, non-judgemental, contained, therapeutic space for you and will work at your pace. I then combine this with other modalities.

The modalities that I use are Person Centred, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic, Gestalt and Solution Focused.

I provide help if you are suffering with, but not limited to the list below:

  • Lack of confidence and low self-esteem
  • Relationship issues
  • Stress related and social problems
  • Trauma
  • Abuse emotional, childhood and sexual
  • Child related issues
  • Grief and bereavement
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Fears, phobias and anger related issues

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an Advanced Diploma in Parks Inner Child Therapy (Dip. PICT), a Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling and a BACP Accredited Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling.

Other qualifications consist of Certificates in Couples Therapy, Grief, Bereavement & Loss, Working with Children and Young People, Play Therapy and Complex Trauma, PTSD & Dissociation to name but a few.

I have experience of providing both short term (6 - 12 weeks) and long term therapy, as I have worked within the NHS IAPT service and I also provide counselling for a charity that specialises in trauma and childhood sexual abuse. I have experience of working with young people as I provide counselling in a secondary school and I am listed as a Couple's Therapist with the Prepare / Enrich organisation and as a Parks Inner Child Therapist on the Penny Parks website.

I am a registered member of both the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the Association Of Christian Counsellors (ACC).

Member organisations


Association for Christian Counsellors

The Association of Christian Counsellors is a professional body representing and setting standards for Christian counselling and care in the UK.

The organisation is made up of various different membership categories, including Counsellor and Accredited, and requires all members working as counsellors to undertake Continuous Professional Development on a regular basis.


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.

How I Work

After an initial assessment to determine which therapy process is suitable for you, we will work together in a partnership. At times homework may be given, simply to enhance the process and therefore reduce the time and money spent in therapy.

As a registered member of the ACC and BACP, I ensure that I abide by their Ethical Frameworks.

I look forward to working with you to help you achieve a new sense of life!

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
