About me

I am an experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor, offering a true integrative approach. I offer face to face sessions as well as online and can be flexible in scheduling. 

There are times when everyone experiences difficult, distressing feelings which interfere with everyday life and relationships and confiding in friends or family members just doesn’t feel right. That’s when it can be helpful to talk things through with a completely neutral person who you know will be supportive and won’t make judgments about what you say.

Whether your problems are from the past, going on right now or impact upon your future, exploring the issues in a confidential place with an experienced, qualified counsellor can help to face challenges, make changes and move forward in the way that is right for you.

This is where Compote Counselling can help.

We know that it can be daunting to take the first steps towards making changes in your life; sometimes facing difficulties can feel distressing or frightening. But with a little courage and our support you really can begin to understand yourself and your difficulties with more clarity, recognise the things that are holding you back and explore different ways to make positive change happen.

Recognising that you could do with some support is the first step – it’s a strength in itself.

Training, qualifications & experience

My approach is integrative, with my first training in Person centred Therapy progressing to Psychotherapeutic Counselling focussed on a true combined approach.

Since qualifying, I have also added Cognitive Behavioural techniques to my skills and now  and become a qualified ISVA - Independent Sexual Violence Advisor which allows me to work in a way which is highly responsive to each person’s individual needs. Perhaps more importantly I work in a very open and realistic way, explaining everything about the counselling process at the start and answering any questions honestly. I encourage autonomy in all my clients. 


I have been working as an integrative therapist since 2018, providing counselling and therapy for adults, adolescents and children experiencing a wide range of difficulties, or seeking self-development. In the past, I have worked for the prison service and in schools and I have also worked with groups and with children experiencing trauma as a result of crime. My professional experience has covered conditions of anxiety, panic attacks, depression, relationship and sexual problems, phobias, low self-esteem, paranoia, trauma, shyness, anger issues and many other kinds of psychological or emotional difficulties. 

I am a member of the BACP - British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and complete regular training and development.

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

Further information

Over the years, I have worked with many different people, from different backgrounds, each with their own individual experiences. 

I also work with people who want to understand themselves on a deeper level, or who use therapy as an ongoing way to maintain their happiness and well-being. It is not always easy to face difficulties and find ways to resolve them, but I have seen people again and again find ways to understand themselves in a deeper way and bring about the changes that lead to more positive, fulfilled and interesting ways of living.
