About me

Sessions IN-PERSON / ONLINE  / PHONE

I am a BACP qualified counsellor (BA Hons Person-Centred Counselling) 

I help women of all ages and backgrounds through life’s challenges to enhance their emotional and spiritual wellbeing with a focus on anxiety and women’s issues.

Person-centred therapy is at the heart of how I work. I specialise in you. I meet you where you are; collaboratively exploring your needs and goals so we can create a space that is most helpful for you.

Counselling is self-care. It is a good way to safely explore your emotions, free of judgement; helping create a more authentic you that feels calmer, more harmonious and better able to cope with even the most difficult times.

I trust in the power of creating a therapeutic relationship with you that supports healing and growth and that by working together, can make the changes you need to shine your brightest.

Do you often feel overwhelmed, anxious or stressed? Are you feeling sad, lonely,  experiencing panic attacks or have a low self-esteem? Perhaps a fear of not being ‘good enough’ is holding you back? Maybe you’re struggling with whatever it means for you to be a woman and how you manage your life and relate to the world around you. Perhaps you feel a little ‘off’ and are curious if counselling can help.

Whatever you’re going through, I’m here for you. I want to help you make sense of what’s going on for you in your world, no matter how complicated or messy or it may feel.

And it’s important to know that counselling can be helpful for everybody – not just those referred by their GP or experiencing severe mental distress.

Working together puts you in control of what you want to explore, when and for how long.

Sometimes issues that are shared in session can feel painful yet by being with you on your emotional journey, can enable a shared experience, offering an opportunity for greater self-awareness, reflection and potential, positive change.

Considering counselling is a brave step towards helping yourself and committing to counselling takes courage.

Alongside my private practice, I have experience of working within the NHS as well as local community counselling services in London. I have supported women with a range of issues including:

Anxiety - Menopause - Infertility - Breast cancer - Peri-natal issues - Domestic abuse - Depression - Burn out - Trauma - Mid Life Issues - Relationships - Divorce - Stress - Spiritual Exploration - Life transitions

You're welcome to book a free 15 minute chat with me via my website to check we're a good fit and ask any questions you may have. Simply choose a time & day to suit your schedule.

I"m here when you're ready and I look forward to connecting with you.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
