I offer an online confidential, caring counselling service for individuals to help you work through emotional issues such as bereavement, relationship issues, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, stress and past experiences that are impacting you in the present. You may be feeling unhappy, stuck or struggling to cope with everyday life and if so talking to an objective and trained professional can really help.
I offer both counselling and coaching for neurodiverse individuals and provide additional insight and empathy through my own lived experience of neurodiversity. My special interest is supporting clients with the psychological issues associated with living with neurodiversity in a neurotypical focused world and helping clients to learn to manage and accept their symptoms.
I have considerable experience of working with both cancer patients and their supporters, to help them manage the stress, anxiety, trauma and loss that can occur during the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
My fee is £50 per session for individuals. Daytime online sessions available from Monday to Friday.
I use a combination of Counselling and Psychotherapy skills and techniques drawn from my training in the models of Transactional Analysis, Mindfulness, EMDR, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and Brainspotting. I've found that my clients can easily relate to these concepts and tools as we work together to answer the questions 'Why do I think, feel or do this?' and 'How can I change or accept this about myself?'
I am an Accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and operate in accordance with their ethical framework. I am registered on the BACP Healthcare Register.
More information about myself and Catalyst Counselling Service can be found on my website.

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.
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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
