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.

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.
