About me

I have many years experience working as a Person Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I am a registered and accredited member of BACP so you can be sure of my competent and ethical practice.

I offer short term or longer term counselling to both adults and young people, as well as supervision of counsellors, psychotherapists and others in the counselling professions. I offer client and supervision sessions in person and also via Skype. Talk and Walk sessions available as appropriate, this can be discussed during an initial session. In person sessions for clients are from my address in Hall Green, B28. In person supervision sessions are from my address in Yardley, B26.

Much of my work in recent years has been delivered online. I find that this can be a really convenient way for people to access counselling, and supervision, in their busy lives. This may be an option you would like to explore whether in the UK or overseas.

I believe that counselling should be both personal and professional. I bring my mix of warmth, genuineness and care, alongside professional qualifications, my own supervision and BACP accreditation.

  • DBS check
  • Insurance
  • BACP accreditation as well as registration
  • Online sessions
  • Supervision
  • Walk and Talk sessions (as appropriate)
  • Regular personal supervision

I worked for a number of years training counsellors and have experience of counselling those currently in training.

I offer sessions starting between 9am and 2pm during school term times only. It may be possible to have sessions outside of these times on occasion, this can be discussed during our initial appointment, or as our sessions continue.

I'm happy to have a brief conversation on the phone, where I may be able to answer any questions you might have about counselling, the way I work, or something else that might help you decide on your next step into counselling.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified with an honours degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Warwick and went on to obtain a Post Graduate Award in Working Therapeutically with Children and Young People. As such I am able to offer counselling and psychotherapy to adults, young people and children.

I have a diploma in Counselling Supervision. I offer supervision to both experienced counsellors, as well as those training to become counsellors, I can also support you through your accreditation processes.

I have worked for a number of years in varying counselling agencies, with clients from all walks of life, experiencing a number of issues including depression, anxiety, loss and bereavement, relationship and family issues, bipolar disorder, panic disorder and phobias.

I have extensive experience working online as a counsellor, both with clients in the UK and overseas.
