About me

If you are struggling with anxiety, relationship problems, depression, low self-esteem, anger, shame, addiction problems and more, then you will no doubt find psychotherapy and counselling very helpful. If you are struggling with any of these problems, then I know the isolating pain they can cause, but I have seen depression turn to joy, despair into hope and self-hatred into self-love. It is very important that you feel safe and comfortable and that is why I offer a £20 first session (initial assessment) to start with, so you can see if I am the right person for you. If I think I am not the right person for you, I will point you in the right direction. Being real and honest with someone in a trustworthy setting can be a great healer.

I ask you at the start what your goals are and we agree a plan going forward. I am integrative in my approach, meaning I tailor the sessions towards you, drawing on many approaches for example CBT or deeper inner healing work.

If you are feeling anxiety, confusion, hurt, anger, shame, depression, fear or struggling with an addiction, then I suggest you are kind, gentle and loving towards yourself by taking a risk and starting the process of change.

As well as in-person counselling, I also offer counselling by Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp or over the phone by appointment. If we meet in-person, then the room, which I hire from a local church, is big, easy to keep over 2 Metres apart, ventilated, hand gel is available, surfaces wiped down, temperatures taken etc.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy from The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute, which is validated by Staffordshire University.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP) as well as the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and abide by their code of ethics.

I regularly attend supervision and professional training workshops as part of my own continuing professional development and personal growth.

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
