I am an experienced counsellor who works with a varied client group from children to retired adults. I have practised in schools, colleges, universities, worked in secure establishments and within charitable trusts.
I can offer a safe space following an initial free half hour introductory session to decide a way forward. My work is client led with an agreed number of initial sessions to explore the presenting issues?
My specialist areas of work are around harmful sexual behaviours, trauma and sexual abuse. I currently work with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, though am happy to discuss any area that is causing distress to a client.
I am a military veteran and can offer a service to clients and their families.
I can offer evening and weekend sessions for clients who work during the day.
Training, qualifications & experience
I began working in schools after gaining my Diploma in Integrative counselling in 2013. I have continued to work in schools, university settings, the NHS and charitable trusts with clients who present with a variety of psychological distress.
I offer an open, non judgemental respectful way of working with clients over an agreed number of sessions. Since gaining my BSc (Hons) I have worked with NHS clients in a community setting ranging from low levels of anxiety to high levels of distress including self harm and suicidal ideation.
Having my own therapy room enables me to be flexible to suit my clients needs.
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.

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).
