About me

I am a fully trained BACP Registered counsellor working in Worcester and online. My approach is based in the belief that:

  • we all have the potential for growth and change, even when things seem hopeless.
  • our natural urge is to thrive, even when we seem to be trapped in cycles, lost in chaos, or feel low in motivation.
  • by having a caring and honest relationship where we can talk through what we are experiencing, we can increasingly choose how we respond to the issues that arise in our lives.

I am based in a pleasant garden office in Worcester for face-to-face work, and also work online via Instant Messaging or video feed. I offer brief and longer term counselling for a wide range of concerns. Empathy and genuineness lie at the heart of my approach and, influenced by Humanist approaches, I value the uniqueness of every client's needs, whether we are working online or face to face.

Taking your time to consider committing to counselling, as well as choosing the right counsellor for you, can be a significant part of the therapeutic process. When you feel ready, you can contact me via whichever medium best suits you: email, text or phone. This first contact may in itself help you to get a feel for if you are ready to take the next step, which would be for us to arrange an initial meeting. This initial meeting, which is charged at £40 and would last for around an hour or so, will help us explore in more depth what you would like from counselling, and how far we would be able to work well together. If we feel we make a good fit, we will then agree as to how we would like to work, and will arrange to meet regularly, ideally once a week, but sometimes once a fortnight if that is appropriate.

The website link above will lead you to more information on who I am, the ways I work, and how I may be able to help through these varied approaches:

  • Person-centred counselling
  • CBT
  • Emotional Freedom Technique (tapping)
  • Focussing &  Mindfulness
  • Evolutionary adaptive theory

Training, qualifications & experience

Outside of private practice, I greatly value my long term work with adolescents, and more recent work specifically with care-leavers. My initial training focused on bereavement and life-changing illness at a Worcestershire hospice. In addition to counselling, I am a Specialist Mentor for college and university students with mental health needs.
Previous to counselling, I trained in teaching literature and creative writing, which I have also used therapeutically.

My qualifications:

  • Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • MA Humanities
  • PGCE (FE)
  • BA Hons English

Of course, just as importantly is the experience of facing change in myself, and of having been witness to others in their own times of transition.

Other training includes:

  • Working with Personality Disorder
  • Understanding Alcohol and Substance Misuse
  • Brief Therapy
  • Online Therapy
  • Psychological and Behavioural Impacts of Malnutirion in Eating Disorder
  • Grief in adults and children
  • Freefall writing - therapeutic writing
  • Certificate in Therapeutic Life Story Work
