About me

***Update: I am now offering face-to-face sessions in a purpose-designed, 'Covid secure' environment. Do contact me for more details.***

If you, or someone you care about, is experiencing difficulties in life, it can be helpful to talk with a highly-skilled and experienced professional who can help to navigate through these moments. As a psychotherapist registered with the BACP, I provide a compassionate and safe space for you to explore these issues in a non-judgmental manner.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked in mental health since 2008 across a range of different areas including for the NHS, voluntary and private sectors. In older adult, adult, forensic, in-patient and community settings. I hold an MSc in counselling and psychotherapy which trained me to integrate a person-centred approach with CBT and attachment, bringing in Compassion Focussed Therapy, to best meet the needs of clients.

I have worked with clients bringing a wide range of difficulties including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, PTSD, domestic abuse and low self-esteem. Despite this, the most important part of any therapy is based on the relationship between client and therapist so I would be delighted to hear from you to see whether my approach works best for you.

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.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
