About me

I specialise in providing therapy for 11-25 year olds. I have over 3 years of counselling experience and 6 years' experience working with children and young people in other capacities. I have provided counselling in schools and for a local charity. In 2020, I created my private counselling practice (Hashtag Therapy), which aims to make therapy accessible for and appealing to young people by offering flexible and affordable online sessions. 

My approach to therapy is integrative, which means my Masters trained me in a few different therapeutic styles and I draw on different techniques to best suit you and what you need from sessions. I like to work with you to decide what your goals for therapy are and the approach and different techniques we might use. I always encourage you to tell me if something isn't feeling like the right fit for you. 

I also think the relationship between a therapist and a client is just as important as the approach the therapist takes, and I will therefore make sure you feel comfortable and safe in our sessions. 

Sessions can take place via Zoom, phone call or instant message (What's App or Signal), or a mixture of these if this fits best around your life. I can also be flexible with how often you would like therapy and offer weekly, fortnightly, monthly and 'as and when' sessions. 

Therapy is extremely personal and all therapists are different, so it's normal to not get along with every therapist you speak to. I can help you to decide whether therapy with me is right for you by offering a free 15 minute chat in whichever session format you prefer. Please do feel free to get in touch to arrange this or with any other questions. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I studied MSc Counselling Children and Young People at the University of Northampton. This trained me in an integrative approach to therapy with young people specifically. This means I draw on a range of approaches in my therapeutic work including; person-centred, creative, systemic and cognitive-behavioural. 

I also have an undergraduate degree in Psychology from The University of Sheffield. This provides me with an in depth knowledge of child development and the neuroscience behind the brain development of young people and how different therapeutic techniques work.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
