About me

Anxiety, Body Image, Addictions and more.

Do you feel stuck in patterns that no longer work for you? Perhaps you feel scared, sad or frustrated but can't identify the cause? Whatever you bring, I provide a safe and confidential space and work with insight and sensitivity.

I have a particular interest and knowledge working with adults and their recovery from addictions and behaviours.

I have also worked extensively with body image and eating disorders.

Therapy with me can help you to explore your feelings, behaviours and attitudes and allows you the opportunity to make lasting changes that feel healthy and authentic.

I came to work as a counsellor through my own experience of therapy and have learnt that the best thing we can do to grow is take responsibility for our own pain and self-care.

I offer online sessions via Zoom and by telephone.  I endeavour to create a relaxed and welcoming professional relationship, whereby we can explore the issues that concern you.  I seek to help you gain more understanding and acceptance of yourself and those around you without judgement.

I am a Registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and abide by these ethical frameworks and guidelines.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an experienced person-centred counsellor. I have worked in a variety of settings offering support in Schools, residential treatment for addiction and private practice.

I have worked with people of all ages with a wide range of issues including anxiety, addiction, eating disorders, anger, bereavement, family issues, self-harm and stress.

My counselling qualifications are:

BSc (Hons) in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy.

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.

Further information

Understandably, it can feel daunting to meet a counsellor for the first time. However, our first session together is simply an opportunity to think about what you want from counselling. There is no obligation and if you're not sure or have any questions, please feel welcome to give me a call or send an email. I look forward to hearing from you.
