About me

I am a Pluralistic Counsellor with a wealth of experience working with adults, children and young people. I have considerable experience of working with people who have suffered trauma, loss and self-harm, and who have feelings of low self worth and self-esteem.

Life can be hard; as human beings we are challenged by events and experiences which can leave us feeling vulnerable, frustrated, angry, sad, anxious or depressed. Trying to make sense of what is happening or what has happened in our lives can feel confusing and at times overwhelming.

My role is to support your personal exploration and discovery in a safe and entirely non-judgmental way. I won't give advice or tell you what to do but I can help you to consider different options, make choices, help rediscover your identity and ultimately learn to accept yourself as you are and to live more at peace with yourself and others. I will help you work towards finding an understanding of what has or is still happening to you and how this is affecting you and your relationships with others.

"Peace - it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart." (Unknown)

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a well established private practice which welcomes everyone regardless of gender, sexual identity, age, neurodiversity or background.

As well as working with clients in my own therapy room, my experience is drawn from working in a wide range of settings including a women's charity, primary and secondary schools, special educational need provisions and with corporate clients. 

For over ten years I have worked in education supporting children and young people through current and historical trauma, developing resilience against the pressures of adolescence and encouraging potential which may have become lost along the way.

I am experienced in working with individuals who are Neurodiverse and have supported a number of clients through their diagnosis of ASD and ADHD.

I have a Diploma in Person Centred Therapeutic Counselling; I am also trained in coaching and mentoring.

I am qualified in Counselling and Psychotherapy Supervision.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
