About me

Are you feeling anxious? Depressed? Or experiencing a general feeling of sadness that you can’t explain? Do you feel lost and left wondering why you feel this way? Do you have a deep desire to be heard, not judged, to feel safe and have the opportunity to connect with your feelings and work through your emotions, in your own time, at your own pace.

I can provide that space for you.

By getting to know ourselves better we can gently and compassionately make sense of our world, our blocks and defences. And we can then start to make choices about how we react and experiment with new ways of being.

I can help you to reconnect with yourself, work out what your triggers maybe, what is causing your anxiety, get to the root of your sadness and depression and facilitate a journey to gain a better sense of self, leading to a happier, more fulfilling life.

As a person-centred counsellor I am always client led, I offer different ways for you to access counselling, face to face, telephone or online. I can also offer walking and talking therapy.

Walking and talking during your therapy session, rather than being enclosed in a therapy room can feel less intense for some clients. Walking next to each other, in nature, can feel less formal and can allow deeper exploration of feelings. There is also the added benefit of being outdoors in nature, from increased wellbeing, lowered anxiety, depression and stress levels, to reduce anger and increase confidence and boost self-esteem.

Training, qualifications & experience

After a career in business development and from my own personal journey in therapy I felt drawn to change my path and  qualify to become a counsellor.

Alongside my private practice I work for a charity supporting vulnerable women and young people.

Some of the presenting issues I have worked with have been loss, anxiety, coercive control, living with BPD, ADHD, ADD and EUPD.

I have extensive experience in the following areas.

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • ADHD
  • Childhood sexual abuse
  • Childhood emotional and physical abuse
  • Domestic violence
  • Addiction
  • Self-harm
  • Suicidal ideation

I also have experience working with addiction both one to one and in a group setting.

CPCAB Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.

CPCAB Diploma in Counselling Children & Young People

Advanced Certificate in the application of Polyvagal Theory in Counselling & Psychotherapy

I continue to broaden my knowledge with CPD

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
