About me

I spent over 10 years working in the caring sector, specialising in working with children, young people and parents. This was a demanding line of work which allowed me to come up against a wide variety of issues aswell as a diverse range of people. This was a rewarding area of work, however I also had other dreams. As a young person I enjoyed both sport and drama, and these loves never truly left me, so I took a leap of faith and engaged in one of my loves 'drama'. I enrolled in a leading performance arts college, at what many believed to be a late age for an actor, and achieved an Hons Degree, which I was and am very proud of. I realised at times we limit ourselves by 'ourselves!’. This process of stretching myself took me to my second challenge of studying - Gestalt Therapy.

Are you repeating the same patterns, not finding life fulfilling as you want it to be, sometimes feeling stuck, where did my life go, feeling fixed with emotions and situations, not feeling alive and wondering how you ended up here!

As a Gestalt counsellor I look to address the above. I specialise in working with all parts of self, I encourage the client to concentrate on their experiences in the here and now, exploring hidden feeling that may have been buried for a long time, at times keeping the individual ‘stuck’ unable to progress to where the individual needs to go! As a Gestalt counsellor I work with the client to recognise how they manage themselves in the here and now, allowing the client to explore new possibilities and opportunities. I am creative and explorative and one of the key themes to my working process is how we bring childhood issues in to ‘our’ here and now adult lives. Working in this way allows the client to fully experience, accept and appreciate their complete selves; freeing the client to move past pain, fear, anxiety, depression and self esteem. I believe by doing this the client is better able to discover who they are.

The service I offer emphasises that as human beings we should strive to free ourselves of constraints, which may have been digested by us as children such as - you won't amount to anything! or to be able to tackle challenges which we have to overcome now - I can not stand my job and I feel trapped! I believe - Lets work together to break the chains that hold you back!

Member organisations

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.
