I am an experienced integrative therapeutic Counsellor who incorporates person-centred, early developmental approaches with elements of Therapeutic Play, Compassion Focused Therapy, Trauma Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy.
I work with both adults and children starting from the age of seven years old upwards.
I am able to offer online, face to face and telephone counselling sessions - whichever is the most convenient for you.
My practice is based in the North of Peterborough and I approach my work in the belief that with the right environment and conditions that you have the innate ability to reach your own goals and to connect and grow into who you truly are.
Together we will navigate our way through anything you feel may be holding you back in life, whilst incorporating proven theories and skills to assist you on your healing path.
My work covers a wide range of areas and I have a particular interest and experience in working with survivors of sexual violence as well as children and young people. I work and connect with many agency settings throughout Peterborough and the connecting areas.
When you make contact with me you can expect a warm and sensitive response with an invitation to make an initial appointment for an assessment to discuss your ongoing needs and the next steps.
I do require 24 hours notice of any cancellation of appointment where possible.

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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
