With warm and genuine nature and a person-centred approach underpinning both therapy and Clinical Supervision, I offer counselling and sessions to help every individual to find the answers that are right for them, supporting practicing Counsellors too, in order for them to continue to work effectively and with resilience, in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental way. Appointments are available in person, by Zoom or by telephone.
Coming from a professional holistic therapy background, counselling became a natural step for me to begin a new journey on how to help people to regain a state of well-being and a sense of peace.
Having experience of working both privately and within the IAPT Primary Care sector, I have worked in many areas of psychological distress, such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, trauma, domestic violence and sexual abuse. I work in an integrative way which means that each clients' needs are met as individually and uniquely as they are themselves, with approaches often combined to help clients find their answers to difficulties they may be experiencing in their life at the moment.
I also work closely with Students who are beginning their journey of Counselling training, offering personal therapy and Clinical Supervision, to prepare them to begin working with their own Clients and discover who their core self is and why!
The process of change can be challenging as individuals learn more about themselves, what truly hurts and why, but with the support of the therapeutic relationship that counselling offers, this change becomes a gift and trust in the 'self' becomes stronger.

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.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
