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)

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.
