About me

I am a qualified, registered BACP counsellor and have been practicing since 2009.  I offer warmth, sensitivity, integrity and acceptance to my clients.  As the client, your best interests are at the heart of the counselling and will guide how we work together.  I have had considerable success helping clients with a wide range of issues; including depression, anxiety, bereavement and relationship problems.  I have a breadth and depth of experience gained from several years of consistent work in the public, charitable and voluntary sectors.  I work in an open, collaborative, professional and boundaried way; abiding by the BACP's Ethical Framework.

I offer flexible hours, including daytime, evenings and Saturdays.

Should you contact me, we would discuss your needs & arrange to meet for an introductory session.  This session gives you the opportunity to decide if I am the right counsellor for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a level 5 Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and am committed to continuing professional development in order to broaden my skills and enhance my practice.  I am educated to degree level - MA (Hons) History, 1990 - and found my way to counselling in my late thirties.  In training, I counselled refugees, most of whom had suffered severe loss, trauma & violence.  I also volunteered for a NHS bereavement service and for a local charity supporting young people's mental health.

Between 2011 and 2017, I counselled part-time for a charity supporting young people's sexual and emotional health.  I currently work as a school counsellor in a secondary school; a position I have held since 2014.
