About me

I work with people who are experiencing anxiety, depression and low self-esteem, as well as relationship problems and gender issues.  I aim to provide a safe, supportive space for you to talk and explore what's going on for you.

Since qualifying as a counsellor, I have worked within schools, both primary and senior, and with a number of charities supporting adults.

As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I’m guided by their ethical framework. I am an ally to the LGBTQIA community and have attended further training within this area, most recently with Gendered Intelligence.

I always prefer to have an initial session for us to meet each other and make sure we feel comfortable working together. I am currently offering this as a 15 minute call over the phone or Zoom instead. Either way, please get in touch with me and we can talk about how to start your counselling journey.

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
