About me

Hello and a warm welcome to my page. If you are unhappy or anxious and would like to talk to someone, I can offer a safe and confidential space for you to do that.

I'll work with you to explore and understand your thoughts and feelings. Whether it is a difficulty you are facing right now or experiences from your past that are still troubling you, counselling can help and support you in finding a way forward.

Having been in practice for over 10 years, I have experience working with people with a wide range of issues including difficulties with anxiety and low mood, lack of purpose or direction, as well as family or relationship problems that are preventing them from living a full and happy life. Please get in touch if you would like to book an appointment.

Training, qualifications & experience

BSc (Hons) Degree in Counselling (Bath Spa University)
Foundation Degree in Counselling (O.U.)
Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (CPCAB)
CPD training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Compassion-Focused Therapy.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and follow their code of ethics.

Since 2010, I have volunteered as a Counsellor for Wiltshire Mind. This has enabled me to work with people with a wide range of issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, addictive behaviours, bereavement and questions around identity, purpose and direction.

Previous to this, I worked for four years at a local secondary school in a mentoring role, gaining experience in working with young people with behavioural difficulties and emotional issues. My training and way of working incorporates a range of therapeutic approaches depending on the client’s needs and priorities.

I attend regular supervision in accordance with BACP guidelines to ensure safe practice, and have professional indemnity insurance. I hold an Enhanced DBS certificate.
