You might wonder who I work with?
No matter who we are, we all experience life, which we know brings all kinds of situations to our door. No matter what level our emotional health is at, we will all go through challenging times.

How do we work together?
I am a professional, qualified counsellor. I am knowledgeable and experienced in various mental health matters. I have a proven track record of working with emotional wellbeing for the last 15 years.
I use an integrative approach to my counselling work that is underpinned by person centred qualities. In my view, no one approach fits all. I tailor my counselling tools to that of your individual needs.
Our work together can be time limited or open ended. We would discuss your needs at your first appointment and agree a working plan. Ideally, we would initially meet once a week, for the first six weeks and then review our work together.
In our working together you will experience a safe, trustworthy, therapeutic environment.

I have undertaken various roles within my career as a Counsellor, working with individuals who have experienced loss, attachment difficulties and trauma. In addition to this, I have undertaken extensive training in this specialist area, which I am more than happy to discuss further with you.
My working life has involved various roles working within the charity and private sectors. This has ranged from offering one to one sessions, child protection helplines, rape crisis, to managing and supervising a team.
I am a Registered Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) and abide by their guidelines and code of conduct; and you can find me on their member’s directory.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
