About me

Are you feeling anxious, depressed or suffering from panic attacks? Or maybe you're stressed by the drama and negativity in your relationship or marriage and long for a loving and deeper connection with your partner.  Seeking help can be hard and sometimes the prospect of change can seem daunting or even impossible... but it can also be the crucial first step in transforming your life and relationships.

I am a highly experienced psychotherapist, counsellor and relationship coach. I offer a safe, confidential environment where problematic beliefs, behaviours, feelings, relationship issues and any other areas of concern can be explored with a view to resolution and lasting change.

I’d love to connect with you and to help and support you in any way I can

Please get in touch, and we can arrange an initial conversation to discuss your needs and give you the opportunity to find out more about working with me.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed my core training as a Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapist at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham (UK). I qualified with a first class honours degree and am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. After completing my psychotherapy degree, I pursued an additional one year coach training in London. On-going training, personal development, and supervision form an integral part of my professional life, and contribute greatly to the quality of my work, and the service I deliver.

I have extensive experience of working with a broad range of issues in a variety of settings, including anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, sexual, emotional and physical abuse, low self-esteem, self-harm, personality disorders, divorce, bereavement, and relationship problems to name a few.

I currently work full-time in my private practice but have worked in counselling roles with a number of organisations over the past several years.  My most recent paid role was as the Manager of a local charity that specialises in therapeutic support for survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

I am passionate about the work I do. I love connecting with my clients and helping them to achieve what matters to them most, one powerful conversation at a time.

Sessions can take place in person, over the telephone, or online.

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.
