Currently offering Specialist Online Therapeutic Support
I have over 20 years experience working as a Counsellor in various settings both face to face and online - and with a variety of issues such as loss, anxiety 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. This is crucial when you are looking for support, that you feel comfortable and that you can trust your counsellor.
We have to embrace a new way of working at the moment, and offering support online offers you the full benefits of therapeutic support from the comfort of your own environment.
For many people this is particularly challenging time. You may be experiencing anxiety, loneliness or depression due to the current pandemic. You might not be sure how you are feeling, which can cause us distress and build confusion.
I work with children, adolescents and adults in a capacity to help you feel empowered.
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, young adults experiencing mental health challenges such as anxiety, depression and self-harm.
I have worked 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.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
