About me

Every individual’s journey in therapy is unique.

I offer individuals one-to-one counselling in the Cirencester & Stroud area. I am a qualified counsellor with over ten years experience working with adults, young people and children. I have also worked as a school therapist for 3 years. I offer support for university students either online or in person at my place of work. I also have experience with bereavement counselling, having worked in a hospice for three years.

My approach

Counselling is a process that can offer a space for you to discover your true being or nature. My role will be to accompany you on this journey, and to support you whilst you explore and uncover places within yourself that you may not have previously been aware of. I aim to respond sensitively and intuitively to each person’s experience. I can help you in many different ways including anxiety and depression, feeling trapped by the past, low self esteem, stress, difficulty in relationships, decision making, and feeling anxious about the future.

Your first session is an opportunity for you to get a sense of how I work and whether you will feel like working with me; there are no strings attached. I work both short and long term depending on individual needs.

You may contact me with no obligation and in complete confidence

Member organisations

BACP

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.
