About me

I am an experienced therapist and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and also a member of the Association of Christian Counsellors and abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling. My practice is called Renew Me Therapy.

I am warm with a friendly relaxed manner and approach my work in a flexible, sensitive, non-judgmental and relational way. I have a genuine interest in people and will draw alongside you to work through your presenting issues.

What is Renew Me all about?

Well at some point in our lives, we will experience challenges; life can be hard and cause us to feel really exhausted and quite frankly mentally and emotionally spent.

Renew means to restore, make new; to begin again. Sometimes you just need a safe space to think, to reflect, to explore your thoughts and feelings or address experiences that have depleted you of energy, a sense of self and of being your authentic self.  Sometimes you just need a safe space to release the pause button on truly living and who you are.

Renew Me is a place to release yourself from the weight of the burdens you have carried and embrace the freedom to grow.

How I work

My approach is based on humanistic principles, my modality is person-centered which aims to provide you with a safe space to talk through difficulties in a welcoming and supportive environment, and to find your own ways of addressing issues. I am not the expert, you are the best expert on you, and together we can dive as deep as you are able to go, in order to move forward.

You would have thought carefully about coming to therapy and whatever has bought you to that decision now, I hope to offer you a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings.

I offer a free no obligation 30-minute consultation, either face to face or via telephone or Zoom, where I can gather some basic information from you and where you can have the space to ask questions and see how it might feel for us to work together.

If you decide that you would like to work with me please give me a call or contact me via email; I would love to hear from you.

Ongoing sessions are 50 minutes, and we would usually meet at the same time each week. Counselling can be short term, where we define a set number of sessions to explore a particular issue, or on an ongoing basis where we work to an end when it feels appropriate to do so.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked with a range of issues which include abuse, feeling sad, general anxiety, anxiety disorder, bereavement, child-related issues, depression, loss, OCD, personal development, pregnancy related issues, low self-esteem, self-harm, low confidence and domestic abuse.

Member organisations

ACC

Association for Christian Counsellors

The Association of Christian Counsellors is a professional body representing and setting standards for Christian counselling and care in the UK.

The organisation is made up of various different membership categories, including Counsellor and Accredited, and requires all members working as counsellors to undertake Continuous Professional Development on a regular basis.

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.
