About me

Counselling is about making changes in order to help enable better ways of coping and create positive change. I am a fully qualified therapist providing a confidential, empathic and non-judgemental space to explore your experiences and feelings at your own pace. I have experience helping clients with a wide variety of difficulties and concerns including anxiety and panic, depression, stress, shame, bereavement, low self-esteem, self-harm, trauma, and emotional difficulties. Prior to being a therapist, I worked as a teacher in Secondary Schools.

Please give me a call, text, email to set up a free of charge, no obligation informal telephone call. This is an opportunity to ask any questions you have about the counselling process. I aim to respond to emails or messages within 24 hours.

I provide 50 minute face to face sessions.

From Monday to Friday I am based in a comfortable and private counselling room in Sutton Coldfield. On Saturdays I am based at the Meridian Centre in Yardley Wood. Free parking is available at both locations.

I also provide online sessions.

Member organisations

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.
