About me

Are you struggling with something difficult in the here and now, such as the loss of a loved one, or the breakdown of a relationship? Or perhaps you’re aware of vague, underlying feelings of sadness, anxiety, or anger. Maybe you feel trapped in a cycle of repeated disappointments with partners, friends, career and don’t know why. Whether you know what the problem is, or even if you don’t, therapy can help. It’s an opportunity to explore yourself; to examine feelings, thought, and motivations to gain understanding - the first step towards navigating a different, happier course. You've taken the first brave step - the next is to call.

I am offering both socially distanced face-to-face sessions, telephone or online sessions depending on individual preference. Please contact me to discuss
I work from a place of non-judgement and authenticity; we will work at your own pace. You can expect honesty and integrity from me always. Imagine trying to master a set of monkey bars. Counselling is like having someone standing underneath to encourage, to listen to your fears, to catch you if needed and say keep going, it's ok, you can do this.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience working with all kinds of trauma, drug and alcohol abuse, bereavement and loss.

I have achieved a foundation degree in counselling and psychotherapy through Derby university.

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.
