I am an experienced Integrative Humanistic Counsellor/ Psychotherapist with over 13 years experience of working with adults in a therapeutic capacity .
Having worked in the NHS as a nurse and midwife, I understand the impact of a life limiting or life changing diagnosis and the loss and anxiety of facing unexpected health challenges.
As well as my private practice, I also volunteer as a supervisor and bereavement supporter for Cruse Bereavement Care and deliver training for the organization. I am a BACP accredited Counsellor & accredited Supervisor with the NCS (National Counselling Society). In accordance with the requirements for registered counsellors; I receive monthly supervision support for my work.
I will not judge, give you advice or tell you what to do, but will gently and compassionately enable you to make sense of what you are going through and help you find your way forward. The last year has brought different challenges at work and home. Sometimes, reflecting on how we are feeling can help with regaining resilience and emotional energy to support ourselves and others. We will work together in a safe, trusting and confidential relationship. I believe that counselling is a collaborative process where together, we will discover your own unique way of being and find what works for you.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
