About me

About Counselling: We all feel anxious or sad at times, but when these feelings seem to take over our life, it can have a big impact on our well-being and happiness making us feel unvalued and helpless. It can be hard to connect with our thoughts and feelings making it hard to connect with people at home, at work and in our social life. We can lose our sense of who we are and where we are going in life.

By working together, we can explore some of these feelings with the aim of bringing about change through greater awareness of yourself.

The Counselling Relationship: Building a confidential, respectful and non judgmental relationship is key to our work. We work at your pace so you can find your own way forward with the things that matter to you.

How it works: By talking about things that don't make sense, or that make you sad, afraid or angry and exploring these feelings, some of which you may not be fully aware of, you can identify and express them, and understand a bit more about what you are experiencing.

Knowing yourself better can lead to increased confidence and control over your life. It can build resilience to manage difficult situations and enable you to make the decisions that are important and right for you.

Testimonials: One client told me, 'I had been sleeping for years and now I'm waking up,'(LT) and another, 'I got the tools I need to manage my depression.' (LB) Others have said that being able to talk to someone they didn't know made so much difference to them.

I look forward to meeting you and working together.

Training, qualifications & experience

My Qualifications: I trained and qualified at The Metanoia Institute, gaining a BA (Hons) and a diploma in person centred counselling. I am a registered member of the BACP, British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within their ethical framework.

I also have a BA(Hons) Open degree which included psychology, sociology and child development.

My Previous Life: I worked for many years in a school supporting children with additional learning needs, and their families. I also worked there as an early years practitioner and facilitated positive parenting groups.

Now: As well as my private practice, I volunteer for a local bereavement agency. Here, many issues are explored, such as loss, relationships, self-worth, depression, anxiety and change. I also have experience of working with clients with other issues such as self harm, miscarriage and fertility and parenting.

Member organisations


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.

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.
