About me

Hello and the warmest of welcomes.

Are you ready to take time for yourself away from day-to-day pressures to work towards a deeper understanding of who you are? You may be feeling stuck, confused, lost, uncertain, anxious or overwhelmed by your experiences, relationships or life in general.

I’m a compassionate, down-to-earth psychotherapeutic counsellor experienced at working with a wide range of individuals and issues whilst offering a specialism in bereavement, grief and loss.

I will work with you collaboratively to support exploration and reflection on your concerns, experiences and relationships helping you towards greater self-awareness, self-acceptance and new perspectives which will encourage healing, growth and lasting change.

By understanding yourself more deeply I hope to guide you to access inner resources and qualities of resilience, confidence and determination to make the choices and changes you want in your life.

I provide a safe, inclusive, non-judgmental, and creative space to work towards a greater understanding of yourself, your experiences and relationships. Our work together is about building a trusting, authentic therapeutic relationship which is both supportive and gently challenging in a way that always has your best interests at the centre. I do not give you advice rather I tailor my approach to shine a light on patterns of behaviour and ways of relating that may be hindering your growth.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as a psychotherapeutic counsellor at The Gestalt Centre, London which is a leading centre for psychotherapy training in the UK. I have a Diploma in Gestalt therapy. 

Alongside my work in private practice I have worked therapeutically at a GP practice and continue to work in the charitable sector with a bereavement charity and with children and young people in a primary school setting.

Before working as a counsellor my background was in the Education sector with a wealth of experience working with children and young people, their parents/carers as a teacher. 

Member organisations

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.

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.
