About me

Do you feel unable to switch off or find that you can't stop worrying about things? Do your anxieties keep you up at night, leaving you feeling worn out, fed up and unable to move forward?

Would you like to feel more confident and more able to live the life you want to, without anxiety holding you back?

I work with people just like you to help them to stop their anxieties taking over and to live a happier and more fulfilling life. I provide a space where you'll be able to talk openly that feels safe and supportive, helping you to reflect on your feelings and how you can change your ways of thinking for the better.

As well as providing space to talk, we can also work on practical ways to support your mental health and well-being. Supporting you with ways of coping, alongside helping you to understand any underlying reasons why you may be feeling the way that you do. Dealing with the root cause of the issue so that this does not continue to impact you in the same way.

If this sounds like you and you feel you would benefit from getting support in this way, please get in touch to discuss working together. You've already taken the first step in your journey to getting help by being on here today, so if you are ready, I am here to support you along your way.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling that I gained whilst studying at the CPTA in Reading. This focussed on both Person-Centred and Psychodynamic theory, of which I have combined the theories that resonate with me the most to create my own approach to working with clients. This includes looking at how an individuals past experiences can have an impact upon their present-day lives and how they relate and react to other people or situations.

My course also covered a number of other theories such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and focussed on building strong counselling skills addressing a number of life issues such as addiction, bereavement, dealing with change, culture and diversity, sexuality and relationships.

I have been working for Time to Talk West Berkshire, in Newbury for the last 4 years, counselling young people between the ages of 11-25. I have found this work incredibly rewarding and love having the opportunity to support many young people navigate their way through their journeys of growing up and the challenges this can present. I really believe that supporting young people with their mental health really helps with building confidence and resilience, helping them feel more able to cope.

To maintain my professional standards:

- I have regular supervision where I discuss my client work to ensure I am able to provide the best support for my clients.

- I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and follow the ethical guidelines of this professional body.

- I regularly take part in continuous personal development (CPD) to expand and further my knowledge on subjects I feel would benefit my clients. Most recently, and as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been working on how to effectively support clients online or over the phone.

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.
