About me

Sometimes life can be really challenging but you don't have to cope alone.

Whether you are feeling alone, going through a stressful situation, finding it hard to manage, wanting to make change in your life, trying to live with past trauma or simply don’t know how you feel - counselling can be a way for you to figure out what you need to thrive in your life.​

How I work.
I believe you hold the key to your own process and that no shoe fits all. I offer a safe, non-judgmental and supportive space for you to explore what you are going through, find coping strategies, work through feelings, and find understanding. As an integrative and relational counsellor, I work with you to identify your counselling needs and adapt my approach to them so we can find a way forward together. I draw from a core person-centred approach but use elements of Gestalt and psychodynamic practices so that we can use the present and the past to build on the awareness and understanding of your experience.  Through our relationship, we can explore your needs and emotions and can identify, work through and create the changes you want to make for yourself.​

Areas of experience.
I have experience in working with trauma-informed therapy, relationship issues, surviving rape, coping with past sexual abuse, living with loss and grief, depression, anxiety, self-image and self-esteem, exploring sexual and gender identity, loneliness, anxiety, stress, parenting struggles, working with shame, suicidal feelings and self-harm. I respect and value diversity in our communities.​

What to expect.
I offer a free 30 minute consultation where we can meet each other and discuss what you are looking for from counselling. You can see the therapy room and ask any questions you have. If you then wish to go ahead we will arrange your first session.

If you are looking for short-term exploration, regular long-term support, or just want to check in with how you feel about your life right now, I could be the right counsellor for you.

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.

There are three steps leading up to the property.
