About me

I am a Christian Counsellor who works with a wide range of issues, however, my main areas of focus are anxiety, relationship and family issues, abuse, trauma and self-worth.

I offer single session, short or long term therapy, depending on your needs.  I offer a safe, non-judgemental place for you to explore whatever you need to, allowing the space and time to process, understand, and move forward. 

I work with adults, adolescents, children and couples.

Although I am a Christian, I also offer secular counselling, and I have current availability.

Training, qualifications & experience

Qualified to DipHE level in 2015. Have since done further studies in Child Psychology, Working with Couples, Play Therapy, as well as numerous courses in trauma, working with adolescents, shame, anxiety, self worth, and abuse.

I have 5 years of Counselling experience, 5 years experience working with young people in a pastoral setting and schools counselling experience. 

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.
