About me


Hi, you may or may not have had therapy before; if not then the thought of contacting someone for help can feel daunting. The issues that bring people to therapy are varied, it might be a specific event or on ongoing sense that things could be better for you. I work with a variety of issues with people from diverse backgrounds.

I'm a qualified, Accredited and experience counsellor/psychotherapist. I trained Psychodynamically which means I place particular importance on relationships, repeating patterns of behaviours and the unconscious.Unhelpful repetitive patterns of behaviour often have their roots in childhood and by bringing these into conscious awareness you can make informed decisions, take more control of your life rather than feeling like you react and are carried along with no choice. Having the safe space to explore your story with an empathic and compassionate 'other' can in itself feel healing, providing understanding and confidence to move on and find more fulfillment in life.

I believe that the relationship between client and therapist is vital, so I welcome people to come for a few sessions to see if we could work together, it's important you choose the right therapist for you.

I offer confidential counselling and psychotherapy in a safe space where we can look at things together. I have a practice room in Rugby where I offer daytime and some evening appointments.

Therapy can provide the space for you to explore feelings and thoughts you find too difficult or confusing to discuss with your family and friends. I work both long and short term, dependant on your individual needs. I work with adults and young people I am fully DRB checked.

As well as my private practice I work with children and young people for an organisation in Leicester. I have worked in a High School in Birmingham and for several years in a charitable organisation in Leicester both counselling a variety of people and assessing new clients.

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.

Accessibility

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.
