About me

To me counselling is about carving out a place for yourself to discuss and work through anything that you feel is stopping you feeling at your happiest and best. For some this may be feelings of depression, anxiety or relationship troubles. For others it can be harder to vocalise but more of a knowing that things aren't right and you're not ok. Life can be overwhelming and it can become habit to brush our needs to the side to satisfy everything that is pressing on our time and energy. It can be hard to make ourselves the priority. Counselling is a kindness you gift yourself. It provides you with the safe, confidential space you need and deserve to be heard and supported.

This means that I am here to listen to you and work with you to discuss, reflect, explore and empower you to achieve the changes you would like to see in your life. I provide a non-directive talking therapy. We will work with whatever you bring at a time and pace that suits you.

All of my work is underpinned by the BACP ethical framework. This means I work compassionately and reflectively to always strive for your best benefit.

On receiving your initial enquiry I find it best to have a quick confidential chat by your preferred medium (telephone or e-mail) This helps break the ice a little before we first meet, gives you a chance to ask any questions you may have and from there we can book in our first session.

During the corona virus outbreak I will be offering face to face counselling and online appointments through Zoom.

Training, qualifications & experience

Since 2016 I have been working locally for a national childrens charity supporting mothers across a spectrum of issues ranging from overwhelm, depression, anxiety, domestic abuse and substance abuse.

I have also spent time working for West Cumbria Carers supporting people through their work supporting others. This has involved helping people who are struggling with isolation, loss and grief, depression, debt crisis and anxiety.

Member organisations


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.

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.
