About me

I am a qualified and registered Psychotherapist in Emotion Focused Therapy and can work with children, young people and adults. My heart is to journey with the client in whatever they are experiencing. To help and support them through things and to assist in helping them process whatever they feel is going on for them

I also have a passion for working with children and young people from ages 8-19 years of age. I am a counsellor at 4 high schools and use a range of therapy methods depending on the needs of the individual. I believe each young person is different and therefore focus my work on the individual need.

For the past 12 years I have also worked in the primary school setting, working alongside children with additional learning needs and as an emotional well-being practitioner, working with young people with behavioural and emotional issues, and those in the care system. Through working with young people, it has also given me opportunity in working with the family also. Building relationships with them and working together as a team to support the young person is of huge importance.

I have worked with young people for over 12 years through a variety of settings.

Youth work, day nurseries, group work, high schools and primary schools and individual face to face counselling.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
