About me

I offer a lower cost, jargon free, counselling service in Sheffield. I work a varied pattern to fit your schedule including evening, weekend and daytime appointments accessible both face to face and online.

Clients I work with are usually feeling some of the following - depressed, listless, anxious, stressed, down in the dumps, unable to achieve their full potential or in need of a place where they can speak their mind and share how they are feeling. They may have experienced trauma, low self confidence, a loss of somebody important, a loss of a job, physical abuse, emotional abuse or a life altering experience.

I aim to offer my clients a calm, gentle and welcoming space where they feel safe to express themselves. Bringing difficult feelings to counselling can feel overwhelming and it can take time for you to feel comfortable doing this, there is no rush. We will work at a pace which suits you and I will listen in a non-judgemental, supportive, and respectful way.

As an Integrative therapist I have experience working with elements of different therapeutic models. The benefit of this is that I can blend techniques to find a way of working which is helpful to you.  I believe that our mind, bodies, and feelings are linked and will therefore work in a holistic way offering tools such as grounding and breathing techniques where I feel they may help. Sometimes clients find it helpful to work in the here and now, right down to the way in which we interact in the therapy session. Other times it is helpful to look back to past experiences to examine what affect they have had on us and how they might be impacting our life in the present. There may be opportunity for us to work creatively if you find working in a more abstract way helpful.

At the core of my practice is the belief that you are the expert on you even when you might not feel like it. Therefore, I will not tell you what to do but rather support you through your journey of self-exploration. By the time we end therapy it is my hope that you feel more able to face day to day life in a more confident and self-compassionate way.

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

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).
