About me

At times, people can feel overwhelmed by events in their lives. You may feel anxious, confused, depressed, alone or struggling to make an important life decision. You may be troubled by something you don’t understand, or something in your life isn’t working out as you want and you can’t see why or how to change it for the better.  

Trying to make sense of such events and feelings can seem too difficult on your own, and this is where counselling can help. I am a qualified BACP Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist who works with individual adults (18 years or over) on a one-to-one basis in central Warwick or via Skype or telephone. I offer a relaxed, collaborative, non-judgmental and above all safe space for you to explore your issues and difficulties.

I am also a qualified Life Coach, which means I can help you to overcome your challenges, achieve your goals and make positive changes in a structured, dynamic and practical way. Because I’m trained in both disciplines, you can opt for counselling or coaching or we can use elements of both approaches as needed. We will discuss this together as appropriate.

I have experience of working with a wide range of difficulties such as anxiety, depression, low self-confidence, sexuality and gender issues, relationship issues, grief, work-related stress, abuse and other life-changing events.

Although, I mainly work in a person-centred way, I use whatever counselling or coaching styles will be most helpful to you. Working together, I aim to help you to understand yourself better, to see things more clearly, to find your own solutions, and to regain a sense of balance and purpose.  We will work at your pace, and be guided by what you choose to talk about.

I also offer Reiki (energetic healing).

If you feel I may be able to help you or you have any questions, please visit my website or contact me for further details.

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.
