About me

Hello, I am an experienced and qualified psychotherapist and counsellor. I will offer you an empathic, confidential and non-judgemental space to talk about how you are feeling and about your personal struggles.

You may be seeking support due to present circumstances and/or because of past experiences where you are feeling stuck and finding it hard to move forward in life.

The therapeutic relationship is at the heart of how I work. Through this compassionate, holding relationship you will have a space where your thoughts and feelings can be explored, to feel supported and help you understand and process your experiences. This I hope will lead to healing, personal growth and self-awareness.

I can work with you on a short term basis, or working longer term may be more suitable for your needs. We can explore what may be most helpful for you during our initial discussions.

Please feel free to look at my website to get more of a sense of me and how I work.

Training, qualifications & experience

My professional training took place at the Minster Centre over 6 years .

MA Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling (Middlesex University)

I am experienced working with male and female clients in short term counselling or in open ended therapy. Working with issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, confidence issues, childhood trauma, work-related stress and relationship issues.

I am accredited and registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)  and adhere to their professional code of ethics and standards. I am also a member of The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).

Alongside my individual client and group work, I worked part-time for an Employment Assistance Programme as a telephone counsellor providing assessments for referral to short term counselling.

Prior to this I worked with a national mental health charity as a Services Coordinator, project lead and trainer. In addition to being an experienced trainer, after graduation I taught at the Minster Centre which is a leading psychotherapy training institute.

I have over 20 years experience of working in the voluntary/charity sector. Working with individuals and families, primarily in a supportive role but also in community development. I also have experience of setting up and delivering a counselling service.

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.
