About me

We all have times in our lives when we feel stuck and out of balance.

I can help by offering a non-judgemental space, which puts you at the centre and enables you to work in the best way possible to figure out what you can change in your life to bring it more in to balance.

I am currently working face to face at my Evesham office, or online if you prefer.

Whether its a feeling of unfulfillment, depression, anxiety, lack of motivation or difficulties with your relationships with others, talking it through in a way which empowers you to make decisions and changes is often the first step to recovery.

I'm a fully qualified person centred counsellor and a member of the BACP. I can help you by offering an environment where your needs are central and by enabling you to work through your issues at your own pace to identify what will help you to lead a more fulfilling life and promote your wellbeing.

I believe that a holistic approach to self care is necessary for our wellbeing and that counselling is often an integral part of that. I have also received training to support women during menopause and I feel very strongly that its important that women are given a voice and an outlet at this time of change which is often mystified or misunderstood.

I live and work in Evesham and I am passionate about supporting the local community both with my business and voluntary work which I do.

Whether you've had counselling before or you think it’s something that might help you, please feel free to contact me either by email or text/phone call and we can arrange an initial consultation.

During this consultation, which will last around 50 mins I will talk to you about how I work and what I can offer and answer any questions and concerns you have, this time gives us the opportunity to decide whether to work together. If you feel that counselling is the right choice for you we will arrange weekly or fortnightly sessions at a time which suits you.

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.
