About me

Are you a woman who feels trapped or lost in your own life? Do you wonder how you have got to where you are and question some of the decisions you have made? Do you feel weighed down by the past? Do you keep ending up in the same adverse relationships, jobs, and situations?
 
If this sounds like you, I want you to know that I see you and hear you and I would love to help.
 
I am committed to helping women get their lives back after trauma or other adverse experiences. As well as helping you to learn to heal yourself, I can help you to discover what you want for yourself, rather than what society or others have told you that you want or need. If you have experienced emotional abuse, discrimination, childhood neglect, abandonment, loss, sexual abuse, domestic violence, bullying, medical trauma or any other trauma or adverse experience it is understandable that you need a safe space to work out how to move forward and have someone to support you. I believe it is possible to break the patterns that emerge after trauma, loss, or adversity as I have seen it many times in my practice.

How can my counselling help you?

As I’m an integrative counsellor I have many techniques that can help you in your healing journey and we will go at a pace that is right for you. It is a collaborative process and I want to hear from you about what works and what doesn’t. Here are some the ways I can help you gain or regain your freedom and identity:

  •  I can help you identify, understand, and change the detrimental patterns that may have developed due to a traumatic childhood, adverse relationships, or conditioning from society. 
  • I understand how trauma is stored in the body and can help you to process that trauma.
  • I work creatively and can help you to understand and express yourself through art, writing, metaphor and other creative interventions.
  • If you are prone to living in the past or future, I can support you in learning to live in the here and now which is incredibly important for living a meaningful and enjoyable life.
  • So many of us get stuck in our head: I can help you to bring together body and mind and discover the things your body is trying to tell you.
  • I can help you to cultivate self-compassion which can be so sadly lacking when you have experienced trauma.

I am an accredited counsellor with five years experience in private practice and I can offer a safe and nurturing space, either in person (OX3), or online, to focus on your agenda so that you can live the authentic and meaningful life you would like to live. 

Taking the next step

I offer a 15 minute online or telephone consultation to see if my counselling might be suitable. Please do contact me to arrange this or if you would simply like to arrange a first full session. 

Training, qualifications & experience

  • CPCAB Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Accredited member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy)
  • Practicing since 2019 
  • Extensive continuing professional development including training on somatic therapy, inner child work, anxiety, trauma and working with suicidal thoughts
  • The Ultimate EMDR Toolkit Part 1 (Introduction and Implementation) with The Counselling Academy

In addition to my private practice I have worked as a volunteer for a homeless charity, working with young people and for a charity helping survivors of sexual abuse.

Prior to being a counsellor I worked in Human Resources for many years. This has given me a special insight into the stresses and strains of work life and issues in the workplace such as bullying and stress. I am also well-equipped to help anyone who would like to change career.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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.
