About me

I believe everyone has the right to feel safe, heard and respected in life and in the therapy room. Knowing what is best for our mental health is often overwhelming, I am here to help you find a way through what can seem an insurmountable task.

As a qualified integrative therapist, my way of working is adaptable to individual's needs. None of us are the same and I believe that therapy should reflect the complexity and individuality of every client. Practically this means I draw on a variety of techniques catered to the individual in order to develop a way of working that puts your needs front and center.

Many reasons make people want to see a counsellor. Sometimes this might be something concrete; the loss of a loved one or having endured a time of great personal stress. Your concerns might be more vague; a sense of disconnection or unhappiness in life with no easily recognizable cause. At the end of the day the chance to simply sit and talk in a non-judgmental, confidential environment with someone who wants to hear your story can be a great first step on the road to healing.

I am not here to tell you what to do. I firmly believe we are the experts on ourselves and my job is to help you explore and better understand yourself. I might occasionally make suggestions as to activities that may be of help, but you are completely free to pick and choose what you feel comfortable trying. There is no great secret to good mental health, it is about taking the time to experiment and see what works for you and I can help facilitate this.

I offer long and short term therapy for individual adults (18+). Sessions last 50 minutes.  I practice in South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire and have access to therapy rooms in Sheffield and Matlock.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Professional Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, and I am a full registered member of the BACP.

I have experience working with clients from a wide range of backgrounds and have practiced as part of University and College counselling services as well as the voluntary sector. Currently I work at Cavendish Cancer Care supporting cancer patients and their families as well as run my own private practice. 

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.

Key details

DBS check

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.

Wheelchair access is available in Matlock but not in Sheffield.
