About me

I am a warm, compassionate and experienced counsellor who is committed to helping people on their healing path. I can help you move forward if you have experienced, trauma, adversity, bereavement, depression, anxiety or if you are feeling lost.

My counselling can give you the support and perspective you need to find your own way to a more authentic and fulfilling life. I believe, from my own experience having counselling and from working with people, that hope can start to grow in the most difficult of circumstances. 

My counselling style

I offer a compassionate and confidential space for you to get to the root of what is distressing you or holding you back.

I am a qualified integrative counsellor which means that I have many tools to help you. These are the main principles behind my counselling:

  • I believe the answers are within you and I help you find the answers.
  • My holistic approach means that we can work on joining awareness of body and mind which benefits wellbeing.
  • I believe our childhood, early life and past relationships shape us. Exploring and coming to terms with our past can be transforming.
  • Creativity can be incredibly restorative. I can work with art, metaphor and stories if suitable.
  • Trauma is stored in the body unless it is processed and I can help you to process that trauma.
  • I can help you to look at your relationships to find any patterns that are repeating themselves and help you break those patterns. 
  • I believe that self-compassion is essential in healing and will help you to cultivate that self-compassion. 

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.

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.
