About me

When we reach a time in our lives when things feel out of control and scary, we sometimes need a safe space to explore how we are feeling.

Through developing a safe and trusting working alliance with clients I enable them to explore their difficulties and move towards a more healthy and fulfilling way of coping and living.

I am an experienced humanistic counsellor with 15 years of clinical experience.


Since 2005 I have worked for Cruse Bereavement Care as an accredited bereavement counsellor and supervisor, specialising, in particular, in the area of losing a child through stillbirth and miscarriage.

In my private practice I have extensive experience working with a broad range of issues. I am especially experienced in working with anxiety, depression, bereavement and eating disorders.

I especially welcome clients who are living with Autism in their lives.

I would describe myself as a warm, honest and intuitive person and practitioner who is conscientious about my work with people.

My own personal life experiences have influenced and encouraged me to pursue my career in counselling and enable me to understand and empathise on a deep and genuine level.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
