About me

Seeing someone identify changes they want to make, see the things that are holding them back, and in the process, discovering parts of themselves they didn't even know about, are just a few of the reasons for me wanting to be in this profession. Whether that's anxiety, trauma, depression, complex issues with relationships, loneliness etc. 

Firstly, well done for taking the initial step in thinking that therapy might be a place to help uncover and rediscover yourself. I hope to provide a warm and encouraging environment for you, and be there to watch you make the changes that you want to make. 

I am an Individual member of the BACP. I offer therapy for those aged 17+ and cover a broad range of presenting problems that someone may want to come to therapy with.

I practice Integrative counselling and psychotherapy, meaning I do not stay with one particular modality- instead, choosing a range of different theories and perspectives, to help bring you the most tailored therapy that I can. That being said, I also believe the therapeutic relationship we'll hopefully build, is one of the most beneficial aids for therapy.

If therapy with me is something you've become curious about, then try getting in touch. We can schedule in a 30 minute intro and brief assessment, to relax, get to know a bit about you, and identify some of your goals. This talk also lets me explain about my process in therapy, and if, after this no-obligations chat, you feel you want to continue, then we can move onto booking your first session!

Afterwards, I will email over some documents to fill out, just to gather some personal details from you - GP and contact details, before our first session. 

Currently, I am offering Online (Google Meet or MS Teams), and telephone sessions.

I balance my private work alongside other commitments. I will aim to respond to you as soon as possible, however, please expect a short delay in response to communication.

Training, qualifications & experience

My qualifications:

I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy, from the University of Derby. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I also have a Level 4 Online Diploma in Counselling Skills and Studies.

My experience:

I have been working therapeutically for many years. This began within the criminal justice system, working closely with offenders, of whom had a Personality Disorder diagnosis.

I have experience of working as a mental health coach, providing 1:1 and group support to clients with a broad range of difficulties, troubles, and diagnoses.

Currently, I support a charity in a part-time therapy role.

My training:

I continue to train and attend Continued Professional Development (CPD) to better inform my practice.

I attend regular supervision and keep an enhanced and up-to-date DBS check.

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.
