Whatever your circumstances, I appreciate making this first step can be a daunting experience for some, particularly those who may not have had counselling before. It can also be an exciting opportunity to create a fresh, bright and positive new journey into your future.
For those of you that feel like you have lost your way, I have a passion for helping people find their own identities and true voice, gaining confidence in their world. I offer an energetic, enthusiastic, honest and caring approach to my practice within a comfortable and friendly environment. I have vast experience working with clients in a solution focused approach. I work at a pace that suits you and your situation.
Although my training background is in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), I offer a flexible approach which may include some use of other therapies. I am committed to continued learning and development and keep updated with the latest knowledge to help clients to the best of my ability. I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) abiding by their code of ethics including regular supervision.
This year (2021), I have qualified as a trauma therapist and a supervisor. Please see my experience below.
I work with secondary school children from the age of 11 who have expressed a wish to engage in counselling. The young person and I work as a team together where we explore different types of experiments/coping strategies and interventions that may suit their circumstances. These sources are taken from a whole library of techniques I have accumulated over time. I try to make sessions as comfortable as possible for the young person and fun where deemed appropriate.
I hold a current DBS check.
Training, qualifications & experience
Counselling adults in a national mental health organisation dealing with a wide variety of issues in a time limited capacity. These include anxiety, depression, OCD, self harm, relationship issues, low self esteem and loss.
Counselling children and young people in a nationally recognised organisation covering an extensive range of problems.
I am a qualified life coach and offer counselling and coaching services combined for those who are interested in receiving help with achieving goals or overcoming barriers to success.
Relationships can be very difficult and stressful to navigate through. I offer therapeutic support to one partner that is part of a couple or family to understand their belief systems and how they can grow effectively as a unit. I am sorry but I do not counsel couples.
I have knowledge and experience counselling in surrogacy. I offer one to one therapy for IP’s (intended parents), surrogates and support workers coping with the unique challenges these journeys may bring.
I have a post graduate diploma in trauma therapy supporting clients within this complex field. You may be suffering bodily symptoms as a result of trauma and we work together to make sense of them through therapies such as body psychotherapy (no touch).
I am a fully qualified supervisor and offer supervision to trainee counsellors and qualified therapists.

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.
