About me

Counselling & Psychotherapy: Adults, Children & Young People.

I have extensive experience of working with depression, anxiety, loss and relationship difficulties with both adults and children. In my adult work I specialise in all aspects of familial neglect or childhood shame & trauma based histories around sexual abuse or loss. I invite clients to sensitively explore how to work through and better understand ways of making sense and moving on, from such difficult experiences .

I am fully qualified to the highest level to work with Children and Young People often dealing with complex childhood presentations of traumas or issues around parental separations, bullying or confusion around developing sexuality.

My approach is relational. I offer a space where you can feel listened to, understood and accepted in a non-judgemental environment. I am passionate about the counselling process and the empowering experience that it provides.

The therapy is focused on using our developing relationship to achieve the change you seek. I aim to help you regain a sense of meaning and purpose in your life, and with those around you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I work in Private Practice helping clients with a variety of issues. I also work with the NHS Primary Care.

I have a background in working with vulnerable adults and young people providing help and support.  I am currently researching the impact of childhood trauma and shame on adult relationships at Bath Spa University.

I am BACP registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
