There are major challenges in life without warning which you find yourself dealing with a specific life changing circumstance such as a bereavement, redundancy, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties or cultural identity to name a few. It can help to pin point feelings that are difficult to explore. You may be experiencing feelings of being overwhelmed and unsure of yourself.
I provide online counselling for you to explore your personal journey of anxiety, social anxiety, depression, loneliness and low self-esteem and life changing events which can at times leave you feeling stuck.
Explore how you are in the 'here and now' respecting and supporting you by establishing a therapeutic relationship allowing you to feel safe to open up and know that you are heard for who you truly are as an individual.
I provide you an opportunity for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, at your own pace, safely, confidentially and in a non-judgemental way.
I use Person Centred approach, which means I respect and encourage the autonomy of you as an individual.
I provide short term solution focused therapy or long-term allowing the session to come to a natural ending.
I have worked with issues of:
Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Bereavement, Stress, Low-Self-Esteem, Infertility, Shame, Cultural Identity, Sexual Identity, Redundancy, Depression, Guilt, Loss of relationship, Family breakdown, Trauma, Post Covid issues, Bullying and Abuse.
I adhere to the ethical framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Please contact if you require any further information. I provide a FREE 15 minute initial consultation.
Training, qualifications & experience
I worked with charity organisations providing exclusive counselling for adults and children in various locations. Over 20 years supporting people in real life problems with complex and diverse issues in social housing and the private sector. I also worked with student counsellors, children in schools and adults.
My experience as a counsellor has given me an understanding of the internal and external pressures people experience which can lead to unbalance life.

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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

When I work
I work in the privacy of my home using zoom to work with my clients.
I ask my clients to create a separate space for our sessions. At the end of each session return the space created back to its original form. This allows you to recognise the session has started and ended.
If this cannot be done ensure you are in a comfortable position sitting up with your back supported.
Sessions at the office move away from your desk/workstation. If this is not possible try sitting in a different position.
