About me

I am a warm, genuine, experienced counsellor & supervisor offering a safe, relaxed, confidential & non-judgemental space to work through your issues at your pace. I aim to ensure you feel safe and comfortable to talk about your issues, feel listened, supported, and accepted. I am passionate about helping others and it's always a great privilege to work with clients to help them gain clarity, feel calmer & more accepting of themselves and come to a calmer, more peaceful place.


I am an integrative counsellor & work according to your need bringing in various techniques as needed, with your agreement, including mindfulness, CBT and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique).


My personal interest is in trauma and the impact this has on mental health and well-being. Trauma, small or big, past, present, one-off incidents or long-term/ongoing, can have immense detrimental impact on confidence, self-esteem, ability to think, cope and relax and lead to living with worry, anxiety, stress, low mood & depression. Trauma is held in our bodies and can manifest in inexplicable pain and also affect responses to seemingly normal people/situations and having a negative impact on family, friendships and colleagues leading to feeling lonely.


I have worked with adults and young people in person, via telephone, online and have also run and facilitated group work. I also offer counselling to counselling students and those wanting to work on self-exploration for personal development.


I am an Accredited Member of NCS (National Counselling Society); Registered Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and an Accredited EFT Practitioner. I'm fully insured, undertake regular supervision and peer support and regularly undertake opportunities for learning and ongoing professional development (some of which is listed below). I was also volunteer committee member of Counselling Northwest a local organisation run by counsellors providing accessible CPD for counsellors.


I offer appointments Tuesday to Friday daytimes and evenings.

Are you thinking about counselling?

You may be unsure about counselling and if it can help. You may feel you have no reason to be feeling the way you feel, or it may be that others have suggested counselling might be something that could help you. This is where the free introductory call or the reduced fee initial session can be really helpful to work this out with no obligation.

Member organisations

BACP
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.
