Online / Email Counselling
We can all experience difficulties at some point in our life, and it can be a brave first-step to engage with counselling. I aim to offer you a safe, confidential space where you can talk through your difficulties, situation and feelings. From my 17 years experience as a therapist, I have often witnessed how counselling can help people make sense of their difficulties, and discover new ways of coping. You can gain new insights and understandings about your emotional difficulties, your behaviour and your relationships, that help you to consider the best way forward for you, in order to feel more positive and fulfilled within your life.
Throughout my experience, I have worked with a host of clients from a diverse range of backgrounds. I specialise in a wide range of issues such as anxiety, stress, low mood and depression, personal relationships, low confidence, self-esteem issues, loss and bereavement, family issues, cultural issues, personal/academic struggles whilst at university, eating issues, alcohol related difficulties, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive tendencies, phobias, and self-harm.
I offer short-term and long-term counselling to adults and young people, as well as some online/email counselling. I also offer supervision to qualified Counsellors and trainee Counsellors.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I practice from 2 venues, both of which offer a private, warm, comfortable space for counselling / psychotherapy.
- I practice from Maple Leaf Counselling Centre, which is based in Illshaw Heath, Solihull, B94. It is conveniently located a couple of minutes from J4 of the m42, and has onsite parking, and disabled access.
- I also practice from The Well Natural Health Centre, 82 Institute Road, Kings Heath, B14. This service also has disabled access, street parking just outside of the venue, and a public car park is available a 2 minute walk away.
I charge £50 for a 50-minute session.
