About me

Hi I’m Diana. Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.

Are you anxious or depressed?  Struggling and feel as if no one ‘gets’ it?

Are there times when you feel overwhelmed? Perhaps you’re dealing with a difficult situation or something from your past that you would like to explore. Maybe you’re feeling sad and wanting to find out why?

Having the courage to discuss what’s troubling you with a counsellor can be a really hard thing to do. Sometimes it’s difficult to find words to describe how we feel. I can support you with this and help you to explore and to better understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

I know from my own experience how difficult it can be to reach out for help, and how important it feels to find the right person to talk to. I offer a safe, friendly, and non-judgemental space. Therefore, creating a trusting relationship which I believe to be one of the most important aspects of therapy.

Allow me to walk on your journey with you and together we can explore ways to find a path that will help you recover.

Baby and Infant Loss

I specialise in therapy for those affected by pregnancy, baby and child loss. I have a sound knowledge, interest and a lived experience in this area.  I am an Accredited Counsellor with The Foundation for Infant Loss.

Children and Young People

Alongside my private practice I also work part time as a School Counsellor with children and young people aged 8 – 18 years.  I know how important it is that children and young people are supported with their mental health and wellbeing.  I help children and young people to manage their emotions and work with issues ranging from friendship, anxiety, bereavement, through to self harm and suicidal feelings.  I offer them a safe space and ensure they are listened to and allowed to express their thoughts and emotions without feeling judged.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Integrative Counselling from the University of Worcester, a Foundation Degree in Integrative Counselling from the University of Worcester and a Level 3 Certificate in Counselling from Iron Mill College.  I hold a Diploma in Online Counselling Skills.  In addition I have an Advanced Certificate in Clinical Supervision Including Online and Telephone Working - Level 6

I have attended additional training in Understanding Menopause, Foundation Training in Infertility, Infant Loss,  and I hold a current Level 3 Safeguarding Certificate.

I currently work in private practice in Wellington in Somerset, Taunton in Somerset and Online.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
