About me

If you are struggling with painful or difficult feelings and experiences, or having troubles in your relationships, then counselling could help you. I would welcome the opportunity for us to meet and explore these or other issues you may wish to bring.

I am a Counsellor and UKCP registered Psychotherapist. I am also a Tutor at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute and Clinical Supervisor for therapists and support workers.

I would be interested in meeting you, hearing your story and taking the time with you to work through your feelings and experiences.

I realise that taking the step to access therapy is an important and maybe anxiety-provoking one. So if you want to know more in making this decision, I have a website that may give you a sense of the way that I work and answer some of your questions.

Training, qualifications & experience

In addition to working as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist, I am a Tutor and Clinical Supervisor.

Masters Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy - Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (accredited by The University of Birmingham)
This focused on our experience of relationships (with ourselves as well as others), from the very beginning to the present day. This can have a profound impact on our well-being - especially in the way we often lose connection when we feel most vulnerable or struggle to find self-acceptance. When people hit a crisis in life, often this is the time when these difficulties become highlighted. Therefore, my approach involves building a safe and warm relationship where all of this can be explored.
My Masters research explored issues around adoption, the mother-daughter relationship and intergenerational trauma.

Diploma in Clinical Supervision - Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute
I am qualified to offer clinical supervision for trainees and qualified therapists. I am on the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) directory of approved supervisors.

Honours Degree in Psychology - The University of Birmingham
This was awarded through the University of Birmingham and gave me a solid grounding in theories about the human mind, the way we develop, what motivates us, how we learn and process information.

Counselling and Psychotherapy Experience
I have worked  therapeutically with young people and adults in the voluntary sector and in private practice over the past 12 years. Among the various issues I have encountered are: relationship difficulties; depression and anxiety; trauma; bullying; low self esteem; physical and sexual abuse; self harm; bereavement and loss. I am open to working with whatever issues you may bring, alongside both of us discovering all that we can know about who you are as a person.

I would also add that sometimes this process takes time. I specialise in longer term work, although I am also able to take a more specific issue-based approach over a few sessions.
