About me

Experienced counsellor primarily offering a range of therapies to adolescents and young adults who may be struggling with anxiety, depression, panic, exam stress, self-esteem, identity and the many other issues commonly faced by these age groups. I have gained substantial experience helping young people with their problems across the schools counselling service in primary, post primary, special education and private practice.  Experience has also been gained working with university students at home and across the UK.

I work with adults on a range of issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues and addiction within the community, voluntary sector and private practice. This has given me great diversity in my client work and I am able to counsel within a wide range of settings and age groups.

How counselling can help

My aim is to provide emotional support to people who are experiencing difficulties in their lives, by helping them to address, identify and work through their issues. Working together through the most important aspect of counselling, that being the therapeutic relationship. I will offer you a warm, empathetic,  confidential  space.  A space were you can talk through your concerns safely and build positive coping strategies into your life,  while working towards future goals, for a happier healthier you.

What to expect

The first session will give us the opportunity to meet and introduce ourselves. A number of things will be covered such as confidentiality and timing's. The session will be offered for 1 hour and an assessment of your needs will be taken, I will be interested to hear your story and what your goals are for counselling.

Specialism Autism - ADHD aware

Young people and adults with neurodiverse needs. I have personal and professional experience working with (ASD) Autistic Spectrum Disorder and ADHD.  I fully understand the anxiety that goes hand in hand with learning and thinking differences and also aware of the many challenges people face personally, socially and academically every day of their lives. The knowledge and experience I have gained over many years enables me to offer parental support and guidance as well.

Experience and Training within the Voluntary Sector has enabled me to support clients within the Lgbtqia+ Community,  gaining invaluable  experience working with transgender clients.

I have a real affinity for working with older adults and understand the in-depth needs that come with ageing.

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
