About me

You might have found yourself in a place where you are feeling lost, overwhelmed and in need of some clarity or you may need someone to talk to about a specific issue such as a loss, past event or relationship problem.

The fact is that you may not have anyone in your life who you feel you can really open up to without fear of hurting their feelings or what they may think of your vulnerability. 

That's where the unique counselling relationship comes in and whatever you are going through I would love to help you! 

I offer a safe, confidential and accepting space where you can process everything you are feeling in your own time and at your own pace.  Together we will work through whatever issues you want to bring to our sessions, exploring new perspectives and understanding of why you have found yourself where you are. 

Stepping into counselling takes a huge amount of courage, however with time I believe anyone can find their way to a happier more peaceful and fulfilling life! 

"We're all broken, that's how the light gets in" -  Ernest Hemingway

I am a fully qualified counsellor, and am insured and I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists). 

I have particular interest and experience in working with the following issues: 

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Relationship issues 
  • Loss & Bereavement 
  • Past Domestic Abuse & Trauma

Following your enquiry I offer a free 15 minute intro call which provides the opportunity for us to discuss your needs and what you hope to get from counselling as well as ensure that the way in which I work will suit you at this time. 

If we do decide to work together we will then meet for a 50 minute weekly session either online or in-person. I work open ended with opportunities to review every 6 sessions so we can discuss your progress and work in a way that is best for you.  

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me or check out my website  crowncounselling.co.uk - I would love to hear from you.

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.
