About me

If you need space to be calm, to talk, to be emotional, to regroup or to regain your strength then Goddess Counselling is for you.

I offer a safe space without judgement, time out from daily life and a chance to nourish which areas you want to grow in, and to weed the areas that no longer serve you.

I specialise in counselling with people who live or want to live a spiritual life.

Due to my psychiatric background I am also comfortable providing supportive counselling for those who have been diagnosed with a severe mental illness.

I have experience with those who have experienced trauma, grief, caring for others or have been diagnosed with a serious illness such as cancer.

I also welcome those with depression, stress, anxiety and those who would like to learn more about themselves.

Training, qualifications & experience

My qualifications include my counselling diploma with the Tariki Trust, an organisation using Buddhist Psychology at its heart.

I also have a medical degree and am a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists (MRCPsych)

I have a background of growing up with nature magick, tarot and am a qualified shamanic practitioner.

Member organisations


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.
