About me

I believe in a holistic approach to mental health, addressing both the mind and body. As a Person-Centred therapist, I work with many of life's challenges, whatever is on your mind we can work on your wellbeing together, in a non-judgmental, non-directive way.

I am a registered counsellor who specialises in a variety of areas, including addictions, gender identity and relational difficulties. My experience includes working with  LGBTQIA+ & Neurodiverse clients. 

Training, qualifications & experience

My experience has taken me to different counselling agencies, volunteering with a Christian charity and an addiction centre. I continue to work with people with addiction issues valuing the experience you may be going through, understanding the cravings and frustrations which may be happening with wanting to stop. 

I work with the LGBTQIA+ community and neurodiverse clients , again offering support for emotions and relational issues that may be presenting at this time and within your past relations. I work with male related issues, understanding the difficulties in sharing emotions and vulnerabilities. 

I am dedicated to providing personalised care to each client and committed to ongoing training and education to stay up-to-date on the latest research which follows on from my degree in Person-Centred therapy (BA Hons).

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

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.

Sessions that are held in the Flintshire area are accessible.
