About me

I am an experienced Integrative Humanistic Counsellor/ Psychotherapist with over 15 years of experience 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.
In addition to my private practice, I also volunteer as a supervisor and bereavement supporter for Cruse Bereavement Care and deliver training for the organisation. I am a BACP accredited Counsellor & accredited Supervisor with the NCS (National Counselling Society). Following the requirements for registered counsellors, I receive monthly supervision support for my work.        I also have an interest in Spiritual abuse /religious trauma and working with forgiveness. 

I will not judge, give you advice or tell you what to do, but I will gently and compassionately enable you to make sense of what you are going through and help you find your way forward.  The last few years have brought different challenges at work and at home. Sometimes, reflecting on our feelings can help us regain 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 unique way of being and find what works for you.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
