About me

I offer a warm friendly confidential safe space to explore the emotional difficulties or situations which may impact your life. My approach draws from the various models I have trained in (e.g., person-centred, CBT, Psychodynamic, Solution-Focused) as I believe that everyone is unique. Therefore I hold on to a strong ethos that therapy needs to be the best fit to meet an individual’s goals or needs.

My practice is based in Stafford, just 5 minutes' walk from Stafford railway station, 10 minutes' walk from the town centre, and 5 minutes' drive to junction 13 of the M6 motorway.

For more information, feel free to go to my website. Please email, ring, or text me if you have any queries or would like to arrange an initial consultation for counselling.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been a practising counsellor since 2008. I achieved my Graduate Diploma in Counselling from South Cheshire College in 2008 and later attained a post-graduate Diploma in Counselling Studies from the University of Chester. I am a registered member of the BACP and abide by their Ethical Framework, attend regular supervision of my practice and maintain my professional and personal development.

As well as working with adults, I have extensive experience of working with children and young people from ages 5 to 18 years of age, and maintain my Enhanced DBS and safeguarding training requirements. I have previously held the role of youth worker, running projects to support young people into employment. I also worked in a youth offending team, providing emotional support to individuals to help them move away from offending behaviour.

I have experience of delivering both individual and group therapeutic interventions within schools and children's centres. I have worked with some of the harder to engage children and young people, and their families, in and around Staffordshire, both in formal and home settings. I have also worked on a one to one basis with individuals who have Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Asperger’s Syndrome, and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).

I currently work for a national mental health charity with both adults, and children and young people. I work with adult clients on a range of issues including bereavement, life changing illness, work-related issues, anxiety, depression, and childhood sexual abuse.
