About me

Specialist Online Therapeutic Support

I have over 20 years experience working as a Counsellor in various settings (Education, NHS, Mental Health) both face to face and online - and with a variety of issues including loss, anxiety, disordered eating, ADHD, autism and relationship struggles.

Whatever might be impacting you, you will be treated with warmth, respect and offered the time and space to explore your concerns.

Having a good relationship with your counsellor is important, so that you feel comfortable allowing you to trust your counsellor.

I continue offering support online. This gives you the full benefit of therapeutic support whilst benefiting from the comfort of your own home or safe place.

Clients have fed back how well this works for them, freeing up travel time and also being able to access support from different parts of the country.

For many people post lockdown continues to be a particularly challenging time. You may be experiencing anxiety, grief loneliness or depression coming out of lockdown and this way of accessing support offers a safe and comfortable space.

There may be changes in your circumstances, that could be related to your mental, physical or emotional wellbeing that you wish to talk about and explore in a non-judgmental space.

You might want to get help with how you cope with life's challenges, looking for healthier ways to cope. 

I work with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 20 years continuous experience working as a Counsellor.

I've worked extensively with a wide range of difficulties which individuals can face. This includes experiencing loss, anxiety, depression, substance misuse, relationship issues, gender issues, trauma and transitions.

Sometimes you may not be sure exactly what you're feeling and counselling can be a great way of supporting you whilst you navigate your way through this. I provide a safe calm space which allows you to gain personal insight and feel empowered.

Extensive experience in a number of professional settings such as the NHS, CAMHS, Further Education and Counselling Services providing therapeutic support for adults, adolescents and children experiencing mental health challenges such as anxiety, depression and self-harm.

I work with young people and adults with neurodevelopmental conditions such as ASD and ADHD helping them to understand and celebrate their difference and finding holistic ways to manage their difficulties.

I have an interest in mindfulness, meditation and a holistic approach to our wellbeing, and the benefits of practising this in our day to day lives.

I have a Diploma in Counselling and believe in maintaining professional practice through regular CPD. I am a registered member of BACP and adhere to their ethical practises.

I also have my own regular Supervision.

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.
