About me

I am a registered integrative, humanistic counsellor.

I have 20 years’ experience of working with children and families in various settings and have a passion for working with people.

In 2010 I was moved to train as a counsellor. I was surprised at the depth of the journey I went on during my training and how transformative and creative counselling can be.

Counselling can help with many issues such as, depression, anxiety, anger, abuse, bereavement and low self-esteem, to name but a few. It can also help to shine a light on the internal blocks and defences we put in place to navigate our human experience. Gaining an understanding of the self can free us up and ‘lighten the load’ so we move to being more fulfilled and self-accepting.

I aim to hold an empathic, non-judgemental space for you to be heard and a warm, curious, creative atmosphere in which we can explore whatever you want to bring.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have before booking an appointment.

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.
