About me

Looking for a therapist can feel daunting, especially at a time when you are already dealing with difficult circumstances. Perhaps you are coping with anxiety, a bereavement or loss, ill health, relationship issues, work stress or questioning your identity. Or perhaps a traumatic event or historic abuse is continuing to have a negative impact.

As a person-centred counsellor my style is gentle and effective. I provide a safe, caring and non-judgemental space to think and talk. I will work hard to understand your life from your point of view. I will listen to and accept your feelings, working at your pace and not pressuring you.

I've helped clients reduce anxiety and anger, combat stress & depression, overcome trauma, clarify indecision, increase self-esteem & self confidence and find a sense of purpose.

As well as counselling, I offer EMDR Therapy.  This is beneficial for people coping with a traumatic memory, anxiety or phobias. EMDR utilises the natural eye movements usually experienced during sleep and helps the brain properly process the event and develop coping mechanisms.  EMDR enables a traumatic memory to be stored in the past where it belongs.

We'll work together to find the right solutions for you. My aim is to help you feel empowered to take control and change your life for the better.

What Can You Expect?

Sessions last 50 minutes and the first session does not commit you to further appointments. It is a chance for us to meet and see if we can work together. We will discuss what brought you to counselling and what you hope to gain from it. If you feel comfortable talking to me we'll arrange how often we'll meet. I'm experienced in both short and long term work. I will be guided by you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an Honours Degree in Psychology, a Certificate & Diploma in Counselling and have completed the full four-part EMDR Europe Accredited training programme. I have been practising as a counsellor since 2007 and am a Registered & Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have previously worked in the NHS, with MIND (the mental health charity) and at a Further Education College. I therefore have experience working with varying individual needs, wide ranging age groups (18 years +) and differing social and cultural backgrounds.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
