About me

A little about me

It can be intimidating to think about having therapy and choosing the right  therapist, so I'll begin by telling you a little bit about myself. I am a qualified Psychotherapist and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I have experience of working therapeutically with both adults and children in a range of settings for a number of years. I have trained in a wide range of modalities, but ultimately, I believe that a good therapist-client relationship is the basis for any positive therapeutic experience.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

In addition, I am also an Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Practitioner, sometimes known as ‘Tapping.’ This involves using the fingers to gently tap on various meridian points on the face and body to tune into the negative patterns that you may have formed around any uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, or troubling memories. By tapping, you bring the thoughts or emotions into consciousness, allowing you to explore and process these.

Using EFT alongside traditional talking therapies can provide a really quick and effective way to get to the root of any emotional or physical issues you may be struggling with or that are holding you back, in order to bring relief, relaxation and healing. It is particularly effective for stress and anxiety related issues, PTSD and trauma related issues, chronic pain, weight loss, phobias and addictions.

For more information about EFT, how it works and access to research showing its effectiveness please refer to EFT International.

What I offer

I offer a confidential and safe space for you to come and explore the issues that are causing you difficulty, so that you can begin to create change. I have a genuine desire to understand you, and I aim to create an environment, together with you, where you can be yourself fully, without fear of criticism or judgement. I am committed to understanding how you view and experience the world and the challenges and choices you face. I will support you in working through these, in order for you to develop self-understanding and explore different ways of thinking and being, to create real and lasting change in your life.

I offer both short and long term therapy depending on individual need and am quite flexible in the appointments I can offer. This would be discussed at the beginning and reviewed regularly to ensure we are always working to your requirements.

Please feel free to contact me by telephone / email where we can have a quick discussion about what is bringing you to therapy at this time and arrange for an initial assessment. An assessment gives us the opportunity to explore your difficulties a bit more in depth and for you to decide whether you feel we can work together.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have trained using an integrative approach as it feels important to me to have a range of therapeutic tools at my disposal. This means that each individual receives a tailored therapy that is unique to them.  In addition to working in private practice I also work in a separate role for the NHS and have previously worked for numerous counselling organisations. These include The Leicester Counselling Centre, De Montfort University and various charities that offer specialist services for issues such as bereavement and childhood sexual abuse. I also have extensive experience working with issues related to trauma, depression, stress and anxiety.

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.
