About me

About me::

I focus on making counselling a relaxing space.  I offer honesty, authenticity, compassion, openness and empathy.  My down to earth, friendly, warm approach means I am easy to talk to which will help you feel at ease.  My core training is as a person centred counsellor, however I also trained in Transpersonal therapy (body awareness) and Transactional Analysis.  You are an individual, so although I bring my knowledge and experience, I will listen to you without judgement or assumption to uncover what is holding you back.  Helping you to learn compassion both for yourself and others.  I work with depression, anxiety, low self esteem, shame, relationship difficulties, menopause and more.   

I offer a free introductory session of up to 30 minutes that will allow you to ask any questions you may have about coming to counselling.

In my own life I am a mother, sister and auntie.   I qualified as a counsellor in 2019,  having worked as a peer counsellor for 10 years.  My work experience includes working with vulnerable adults in different settings including local council, Family Action and Age UK.   I have worked as a volunteer counsellor for Rape Crisis where I saw female clients who had suffered trauma, rape and sexual violence.    In my private practice,  I help my clients with self esteem issues, increase self-awareness and navigate through life’s challenges.  This includes anxiety, depression, loneliness, work or relationship issues, menopause and much more.   

My practice is insured and supervised.  I am a Registered Member of the BACP.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access

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.
