Hello and welcome, I am an accredited Person-centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in Solihull. I work therapeutically with adults, children and young people with a wide range of difficulties and issues which impact upon their everyday lives emotionally, psychologically and physically. I am experienced in working with clients from different cultures and backgrounds.
I offer a warm, empathic and non-judgmental space where individuals can safely explore and work through their problems. Some of the issues I can offer support with are:
- Anger Issues
- Body image
- Panic disorder
- Social anxiety disorder.
Working with children and young people: There is a growing awareness of the difficulties children and young people can have when communicating psychological and emotional discomfort and how this can leave them feeling isolated, alone and misunderstood. Counselling can help individuals reconnect with themselves and others. In addition to talking therapy I also offer a variety of therapeutic activities and creative work to help facilitate improved self-understanding and awareness of their individual problems and help develop their own resources and coping strategies.
Couples Therapy: I provide a safe, warm and facilitative space for couples to explore and work through their problems. A space to help couples develop clearer communication and understanding; listen and respect each other; re-establish peace and calm in the relationship and rediscovered each other.
I am also experienced in working with individuals who have Asperger’s Syndrome, ASD, ADHD, ADD, specific developmental delay and global developmental delay.
I offer both short-term and long term counselling.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have up-to-date safeguarding and a current Enhanced DBS. I am also fully insured.

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.
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.
