About me

Hello, I am a professionally qualified counsellor working with a wide range of issues within a non-judgemental, warm space where your unique experiences and patterns in life can be shared and explored together. Issues I work with include depression, anxiety, self-harm, life transitions, family relationships, domestic abuse, low self-esteem, OCD, grief and loss. 

I believe that the counselling relationship can be a secure and supportive base from which you can discover your inner resources to find your own way through difficult times in life towards self-understanding and changes. My relational approach to counselling draws upon theories including transactional analysis, attachment theory and use psychodynamic understandings, which place emphasis on how past relationships and experiences can impact our present feelings of well-being and ability to cope with challenges.

Training, qualifications & experience

Prior to qualifying as an integrative counsellor, I studied psychology at university and later qualified with a BA (Hons) in Education following which I then worked within mainstream and special educational settings for over 15 years. These experiences inspired me to work more closely with mental health and led to training for over 5 years to a further qualification of a Diploma in psychotherapeutic integrative counselling (CPCAB and BACP accredited).

I have further training in working with self-harm, suicide and with dissociative disorders. In addition to my role as a counsellor, I also have experience in providing professional support within counselling organisations, including a young persons’ counselling service.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work face-to-face in Horsham, as well as offering online and telephone sessions. 

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.
