About me

We sometimes find ourselves feeling anxious, or depressed, or we are struggling in ways we can’t quite put into words. Finding a therapist that works for you and gives you the space to to gain a better understanding of yourself and what has happened to you is important. You can contact me now to schedule a free 15-minute consultation to discuss how I can help you

I specialise in working with trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, symptoms of ADHD, adverse life events and relationship difficulties. Please contact me to discuss what you would like to work with as I have experience in many errors. I draw on multiple theories to help clients including schema therapy, CBT, attachment and person-centred therapy.

I also work in a trauma informed way and have worked specifically with domestic abuse, sexual abuse, childhood sexual abuse and honour based abuse. 

I offer an empathic and non-judgmental space to explore and gain further understanding into the distress you're experiencing. Therapy should be a collaborative experience and I regularly check in to ensure the therapy is working for you.  

A word from a previous client

“April was wonderful and brought empathy, kindness and calm into my life at a time when I really needed them.”

What happens next?

If you are interested in starting therapy please email me to set up an initial free consultation to assess your needs. We will be able to discuss what brings you to therapy and your goals. 

Each session lasts 50 minutes and progress is reviewed periodically to ensure the therapy is still working for you.

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

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.
