About me

In my practice, I offer confidential, therapeutic sessions to support and empower you to move through challenging emotions and life events, past and present. I work from an integrative approach and structure sessions to tailor-fit the individual that I am working with.

My humanistic training supports my core belief that the therapeutic relationship is one of equality: a kind and compassionate balance within a safe, non-judgemental space where two people meet to cultivate therapeutic change and growth. A good counsellor is a facilitator for subtle inquiry and possibly self-discovery, and the therapeutic relationship in its essence offers the individual space to engage with themselves fully and move towards a more fulfilled and authentic way of being with support from their therapist.

I am a BACP accredited counsellor, clinical supervisor, mindfulness teacher, and academic. Since becoming a member of the BACP in 2014, I have worked in schools and universities, non-profit organisations, and have been a counselling manager in the private sector (EAP).

I currently work in private practice and lecture at a university in Greater Manchester.  In 2019, I was a supervisor with the BACP as part of a pilot scheme, where I supervised pastoral and safeguarding leads in Further Education (FE) Colleges, and I currently work as a trainer for the BACP delivering supervision training to professionals working within FE colleges.  Alongside my work, I am currently completing a Doctorate in Psychological Trauma

Whatever your reasons are for accessing counselling support, it is important that you find the right therapist for you; therefore, I offer a free of charge initial phone call to discuss possible therapy or clinical supervision sessions and answer any questions that you may have. There is no obligation to book an appointment after this phone call, for it is a completely personal choice. 

Warm wishes,

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
