About me

Life can be difficult at times, sometimes we need support in order to alleviate emotional pain and to feel heard. Challenges and difficulties in relationships, work, stress, depression, anxiety, panic disorder, panic attacks, anger, trauma, self harm, childhood issues, sexual and physical abuse, body image, post natal support, gender, sexuality, domestic violence, illness, shame, bariatric (excess weight), confidence and low self esteem, loss, bereavement, infertility just to name a few....

These things can feel overwhelming and perhaps too much to cope with? Maybe your head feels so full up that you can not have any clarity about things? Or you feel paralysed by these difficulties? You may feel that the emotional pain is an obstacle that you can not overcome? Does this sound familiar?

I can work with you in a safe, confidential and private space. I can help you to have clarity, awareness and to ultimately restore balance and wellbeing to your life. For you to have an understanding of who you are, what you would like and for you to feel empowered as an individual. I will help you to challenge negative thoughts in a safe and confidential way. All of our work will be at a pace that's right for you - which is led by you.

Please note at present I am working solely online via video call.

I am a counsellor, trainer and supervisor with over 16 years experience. I work with individuals, groups and organisations. I have experience of working within the NHS, Education and Schools, Social Care, Local Safeguarding Childrens Board and Private Practice.

I have a specialist interest in Obstetric Cholestasis/Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy, Professional Burnout, Vitamin B12, D3 and Trauma.

I truly believe that with understanding comes knowledge and with knowledge comes power. I believe that we can change - we just need the right conditions in which to do so.

Best wishes and look forward to meeting you.

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.
