I am an integrative counsellor having completed my Foundation Degree with the University of Plymouth. I have extensive experience in working with children and young people from the age of 8 years old upwards. As an integrative counsellor I draw upon a range of theories to build a unique framework for my individual client's needs, including transactional analysis, cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic and a person-centred approach.
Over the past decade, I have worked as a Counsellor, Support Worker and mentor for children and young adults. I have gained a wide range of experience including working with autism, learning difficulties, ADHD, challenging behaviour, young people within the justice system, anxiety, disassociation, OCD, suicidal thoughts, gender identity and much more.
I`m also an experienced counsellor for adults with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, addictions and anger management.
More recently, I have been a counsellor within a well known organisation for children and young adults. Within this role, I have gained a wealth of experience in helping young people express their feelings and emotions using a range of creative media including expressive arts, sand play, music and role play.
I`m a passionate counsellor and strongly believes in equality and inclusion for all, therefore, I strive to provide a safe, non-judgemental space which is tailored to suit my clients unique and individual needs.

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.
