About me

The focus of my work is to enable you to have the best life you can. It is important to me to offer you a safe space where I can support you to express yourself, even if you do not know how to begin to speak about your experiences and particularly if you are new to counselling. How I actually work with you will be unique. I aim to ensure that I gain the fullest understanding of you and of what concerns you. For some people, this will take them through an emotional journey towards appreciating who they already are, and for others, this will involve my being alongside them as they explore and undertake very important change. 

There are times when we all experience anxiety and emotional distress, feeling anxious and unhappy in everyday life. Counselling and working together through times of difficulty, can help you to see things more clearly, possibly from a different view-point. This can enable you to focus on your feelings and your life at present with a goal to facilitating positive changes in your life.

My overall aim is to strengthen your own ability to identify and implement solutions so that you no longer need me and feel empowered to develop and manage your life in a way that is positive for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have gained a wide range if experiences working in mental health, safeguarding, illness, disability and education with children, adolescents and adults.

I have worked and currently hold contracts covering 4 Children residential homes throughout Leicestershire and the Nottinghamshire border.

I have worked for 12 years as a school and college counsellor working with young people from age 5 - 21 years.

I have worked as a primary school counsellor in 2 schools in Leicester working with an age range from 6 to 11 years old. I have a vast experience working with self harm, self esteem, bullying, relationships and sexuality, working with every aspect of being a young person in this day and age and the problems with social media that arise. 

August 2018 to present date, I was presented with the opportunity to work as The Clinical Lead for Leicestershire working with Service Six, Counselling young people throughout Leicestershire specialising in sexual abuse.

March 2014 - February 2019, I set up and managed the Counselling Service at The Leicester LGBT Centre and facilitate group and individual Supervision for the Centre. I have experience of counselling LGBT Clients working through questions of gender, sexuality and identity.

I set up my private practice Leicestershire Counselling in 2009 I work with:

Anxiety & Depression which are often combined, fortunately treating depression also helps ease symptoms of anxiety. Depression and anxiety can also cause physical symptoms, professional counselling can make dealing with anxiety easier. Learning ways to deal with attacks & take control of your life.

Chronic illness and disability now affect more people than ever before. Counselling can also be a means of coping with physical & emotional symptoms of loss and pain. Caring for someone with a physical disability or illness can be a very challenging responsibility & emotional draining.

Abuse can happen to anyone. It involves more than physical violence, abuse can be emotional and sexual. Abuse has a devastating impact. It can create a wide ranging and long lasting physical, emotional and psychological scars. Counselling helps to rebuild your life.

Relationships issues such as marriage problems, affairs, separation and abuse can leave you feeling angry, sad, insecure.

Bereavement there’s no right or wrong way to grieve and there’s no telling how long it may take. There are different types of bereavement and loss, with different effects. Counselling helps in working through your grief and coming to terms with your loss.

Drugs, Alcohol, Gambling, Addictions Although substances and addictions can feel good at first, they can ultimately do a lot of harm to the body and brain. The most widely used drug in the world is alcohol which acts as a depressant that alters perceptions, emotions, and senses.

Anger is a secondary emotion that is hugely misunderstood. It is a signal and a reaction when we think and believe we are being treated unfairly. Feelings of hurt, betrayal, guilt and upset.

LGBT Counselling it can be difficult to find counsellor with some understanding of the issues and how daunting the prospect of taking the first steps can be. I offer counselling that provides a confidential, non-judgemental and friendly space in which in which you can feel safe and secure when discussing your feelings of sexuality, identity and experiences of discrimination or rejection.

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.

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

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.
