I am an integrative counsellor offering 1:1 support via telephone, zoom or face to face appointments in my therapy room.
I specialise in Bereavement, Trauma, Depression and Anxiety. My private practice provides a quiet, safe, confidetial space to talk. As a counsellor I'm non-judgmental, empathic and client led. The therapeutic process is individually catered to what the client brings and needs.
I have experience working with:
- Relationship issues
- Low mood
- Suicide within a family
- Stress-related issues
I have been a counsellor for many years, during this time I have worked with 1:1 clients, Couples Counselling and Emotional Support Groups. Please see below for more information about this.
The next step
It can feel quite daunting making the decision to see a counsellor. I provide an initial free 50 minute in-take session. This in-take meeting will give the opportunity for both myself the counsellor and you the client, time to explore what you want from this process, then you can make the decision if I am the right counsellor for you. Being genuine from the beginning and exploring the counsellor/client relationship will help to build a rapport, enabling the therapeutic relationship to work more successfully.
You can call me on 07983799140 or send me an email here if you have any questions or would like to set up a session.
Training, qualifications & experience

I abide and work alongside the ethical framework set out by BACP. I work with adults only (18+) and I also provide couple counselling.
I am an integrative counsellor which means I work using CBT, Humanistic and Psychodynamic approach, catering the way I work to the need of the client. I also use play therapy, art therapy, visuasation, stone therapy and many other therapies that are useful if a client is struggling too verbalise how they are feeling.

As a counsellor I continuously expand my experience and knowledge by attending regular CPD workshops, this keeps me updated, aswell as it enables me to learn new skills, which will be incorporated into my private practice.
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.
