About me

I believe that counselling provides healing through a safe relationship. One in which you can discuss and explore your thoughts and feelings, without fear. I recognize the courage it takes to make that first contact, and I will support you to find your own way through your current situation but won’t tell you what you should do. Every client is a unique individual and I value and respect you for who you are. 

"Let go of who you think you're supposed to be; embrace who you are" Brene Brown

Training, qualifications & experience

My qualification is an FdA in Therapeutic Counselling, and i work in a relational way. I believe it is the relationship which allows for the healing to happen.
I have worked for Listening Post a Gloucestershire based charity since 2011 providing counselling support to adults and more recently supervision to the counsellors. I also work for ARA, Addiction Recovery Agency who support clients who either have problems with gambling or are affected by someone who does. 

I have had my own private practice since 2014 and I have worked with a wide range of client issues including, suicidal ideation, eating disorders, relationship problems, abuse, domestic violence, gender and sexuality issues, depression, stress, shame, loss and grief, as well as personal development issues of confidence and self acceptance.
Working in a relational way I aim to help you to find acceptance in yourself as well as find your way forward. 

Member organisations

BACP
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

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
