About me

I believe that we all have the ability to grow and expand from the foundations of what we have learnt. We're valuable and have so much potential but it's totally normal to find ourselves questioning who we are. Many of us experience feelings of anxiety, depression and feeling sad and reaching out for support takes real strength. I offer a safe relationship to talk through the troubles of everyday life as well as major life events that have rocked your sense of self. We will work with what you bring as you are the expert on yourself and everything is relevant and necessary to personal growth.

We can work together to explore your early experiences and how you manage these in your present world. These early experiences can echo into our adult life whether you are aware of them or not. I will work alongside you to bring about awareness and allow space for exploration on how this has effected your life up until this point. By allowing insight into these current behaviours, by not judging them will allow change.

I have experience of working in many areas and all of them resonate around trauma. This is with all of us from early life trauma to everyday trauma that we may not be as aware of. I have worked with eating disorders, self harm, OCD, domestic abuse and pregnancy related issues with both adults and young people.

I work in two locations, Gloucester and Nailsworth. I am a qualified counsellor in therapeutic counselling and a member of the BACP.

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
