About me

Sometimes we can feel lost and confused or we may need support coming to terms with an event, decision or change in our lives. Sometimes we know we need support but we aren't sure exactly why or where to start. I can offer a confidential and safe place for you to explore what is going on for you and help to facilitate change or help you to manage ongoing issues. The first step in asking for support is often the hardest you can take and I hope that you feel you can take that step with me alongside you.

I am an experienced, accredited qualified Integrative Counsellor and Supervisor and what I can offer depends on what you need or want to get from counselling. As an Intergrative Counsellor I am able to use a range of skills to tailor our sessions to the best outcome for you.

I can deliver sessions online, by telephone or face to face depending on your preference. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am trained as an Intergrative Counsellor and Supervisor and have been in practice for over ten years. I have experience and training in a range of modalities including DBT/creative therapies with both Children and Adults. I have extensive experience of working with Suicidal thoughts/feelings, trauma, abuse and personality disorders as well as depression and anxiety.

I have worked within many settings including the NHS, Universities as well as dedicated counselling centres in local communities not only as a counsellor and Supervisor but also as a service manager implementing and developing services to best practice standards.

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.
