About me

Most of us are looking for a place we feel we belong with someone we can relate to, who can relate to us. If your looking for a safe space outside your usual setting call or email me today.

Are you ready for a change? Are you looking for support in understanding and making sense of life events? Maybe you just feel like something is missing, or you may be feeling stuck. Whatever is on your mind, contact me to discuss what might best help you. I am an experienced Integrative Counsellor and Life Coach, specialising in attachment and relationship issues both personal and work.  My expertise also extend to depression, stress, anxiety and addiction. I can help you reflect, clarify what's most important, and find your own way forward.

Counsellor

I am aware of the importance of race, culture, beliefs, values, attitudes, religion and language in the life of the client and I am equipped to work with culturally diverse groups, with my experience of working with clients from LGBT and BAME communities.

My aim is always to tailor therapy to the client and not the client to the therapy, this ensures that the focus remains on the clients agenda and the client remains as the navigator through his or her journey.

My areas of experience include Drugs and Alcohol and common mental illness.  I have worked quite vastly with bereavement, sexual health, gender identity, sexual traumas, eating disorders, cultural identity, anxiety, behavioural difficulties, depression, emotional abuse, family difficulties, panic attacks, pregnancy/family planning, physical, verbal and mental abuse, relationship struggles, self-harm, self-esteem and stress.

Life Coach

As a life coach I will help you master the tools needed to thrive in this crazy but amazing world. Look at me like a personal trainer, my job is to help you reach your goals or make a change in your life. I will help to get you out of your head and start taking action in the areas of your life that you wish to change. I will play the roles of a motivator, a strategist and an accountability partner. My goal is to help you reach your goal in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible.

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.

Key details

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.
