About me

Do you need someone to talk to, space, where your voice, is heard, a place you can be yourself? A warm inviting space for you to talk about what feels important to you?  Feeling sad, worried, or alone, this could be the place for you.

I am caring, warm, and passionate about helping others work through what feels difficult.

I work with clients in a confidential, non-judgemental space where they are valued and respected.

My approach to therapy is integrative, this means that I offer different types of therapy. Person, Centred(Humanistic) I work to build a therapeutic relationship with my clients, and together we can think about feelings, experiences, and relationships. CBT is solution-based, I help clients to understand the connection between their thoughts and feelings, and how thoughts and feelings influence their behaviour.

Finding the right person to trust when seeking help can seem overwhelming. I offer an initial 30-minute free consultation, to help you decide if counselling is what you need. And for you to see how comfortable you are with me.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. I studied at Middlesex University, where I graduated as a Person-Centred (Humanist) counsellor. Before that, I completed a diploma in Coaching and Mentoring.

I am a qualified Life Skills Coach Mentor and Careers Advisor.

I have experience working with the NHS providing counselling to frontline staff emotionally, and psychologically affected by Covid-19. I have undergone comprehensive training on the effects of Covid related issues including trauma.

My background includes working in schools and as an advocate for families. It also includes working with adults and young people with additional needs, such as Autism, and ADHD. I have extensive experience working with Bereavement, Domestic abuse, Cultural issues, and Depression.

I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). It ensures all its members are trained and qualified, and that they work ethically.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
