About me

I have been working as a Counsellor in private practice since I qualified in 2000.

I specialise in Relationship Counselling, working closely with families as a whole or as Individuals, children and couples since 2010.
I am a Humanistic Counsellor. I view with each person as an individual, even in a family/couples session, each person has their own identity.
I have a gentle approach to allow my clients to feel safe and comfortable to work on any issues they choose to explore, anything that is preventing them from living, from thriving and feeling good about themselves and others.
There is no age limit to have Counselling.

As human beings we are complicated; whatever your issue, or maybe there's nothing you can pinpoint ...just a feeling, I can help you re-gain peace of mind. To read more about how I work :

"We may be powerless to alter certain events, but we remain free to choose our attitude to them." Allain de Botton

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been qualified now for a little over 10 years with a BA(hons) Professional Studies Counselling at Chichester University. I am a registered member of the BACP and Member of the Association for family Therapy and Systemic Practice.

I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethics and framework. 

I am also a Qualified Family Group Conference Coordinator(Accred). I work part-time for Daybreak, (a registered charity) helping families re-build their lives.
In 2016 I embarked on further learning about the body as a whole studying at CNM. I learnt and continue to explore about the influence of our food intake (nutrition) and our health, both how it effects our well being and  our minds.  Our  ability to think good thoughts are affected by our diet.
My Counselling Practice looks at any issues that could be creating a feeling of 'emptiness' or 'out of control'.with excessive drinking or addiction, anxiety to disguise the feelings of helplessness.. These are the symptoms of deeper complex issues that will require exploration to bring back the balance & harmony.
My further studies include Homeopathy, nutrition and colour therapy.
We all need to connect, to relate, and this begins with our family or friends we call family. I work with clients on all issues but specialising in relationships, (including loneliness, addictions, stress) as these and other issues will affect how we connect/relate and get on in life.

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.
