I offer a confidential, warm, empathic and non-judgmental approach while addressing a broad range of mental health issues, personal and relationship difficulties.
I have a real passion for supporting parents carers struggling with mentally and physically/ unwell children/adolescents. For three years I ran and co-facilitated a support group for parents/carers of loved one's with an eating disorder. When children are unwell, parents often don't look after themselves, as understandably all their energies go into supporting their child. In my own personal experience, I found that self-care including therapy, enabled me to support my loved one in a healthier way.
I also have particular experience working with pregnancy, pregnancy loss, miscarriage, still birth, IVF and infertility. I have experience of supporting mothers with peri/post-natal depression, traumatic birth and the consequences. I am able to offer support for women throughout their pregnancy and post-natally.

I am a member of the BACP and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework.
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.

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).
