If you are reading this, then you may well be considering taking a step towards reaching out for help. Maybe you need some support through something difficult, or maybe life has felt difficult for a while with things that you are struggling to understand and change alone.
If you are unhappy with things in your life at the moment, then counselling can help.
How do you know if I am the right therapist for you to choose to work with?
This is a good and important question, and one that ultimately, only you can answer. So let me give you some more information about me to hopefully help you to decide.
I am a qualified and experienced, NCPS registered counsellor and psychotherapist based in Leamington Spa, and I work with men, women, teens and children. I am able to offer appointments face-to-face, online, and on the telephone.
Since beginning my counselling training in 2011, I have completed many hours of clinical work, within organisational settings such as charities and schools, and within my own private practice.
I support clients experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, low self esteem, grief, trauma, and difficulties with relationships, as well as many other presenting issues. I also have a speciality area, and extensive experience, of working with adults and adolescents affected by sexual violence or abuse.
My approach is collaborative and I aim to work with you in an empathic and non-judgemental way in order to support you in recovering from, and learning from, your experiences, and making changes that enable you to move forward with your life.
Whilst Cognitive Behavioural Therapy lies at the core of my qualifications, and I have since completed qualifications in other modalities such as Transactional Analysis, research suggests that it isn't the modality that is brought into practice that makes all the difference in effective therapy. It's actually the therapeutic relationship built between client and therapist that matters the most. Feeling able to trust your therapist and being able to create a space together within which to identify and explore patterns, and work towards meaningful and lasting change, is what is most essential to effective therapy.
With this in mind, I always offer an initial telephone consultation free of charge to anyone considering working with me. This allows us to discuss what you hope to gain from therapy, and how we may work together to achieve that, whilst also giving you an opportunity to get a better idea about whether you feel that I am the right therapist for you to choose to work with.
I am an accredited registered member of the NCPS and adhere to their ethical framework. I receive the required amount of clinical supervision to ensure that my practice is both safe and ethical. A copy of the NCPS ethical framework will be available for clients and can also be found on the NCPS website.
If you have any questions at all, then please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss them.

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.
