About me

A little about me

I'm a person, like you, who has navigated my way through the trials and tribulations that accompany the human experience. Life involves a plethora of emotions that are common for all humans.

How counselling can help

Perhaps you’re feeling stressed right now? Racing thoughts, overthinking, discontent, ill at ease. You worry whether you have made the right choices. Things just aren’t working out the way you want them to and you don’t know why.  You’re stuck in a cycle of doing the same things all the time and you’re just not happy.  There might be feelings of guilt, shame, sadness, emptiness, fearfulness or anger.  Maybe you don’t feel anything at all?  Maybe you’re numb and the ‘nothingness’ is hard to deal with?  You don’t know how to move through all this, or how to get to the other side and start living your life.  Working with a professional; a witnessing other, can support you in recognising deep rooted patterns that impact your life.  Identification of such patterns leads to awareness, which, empowers choice and change. 

What to expect when we work together

As a humanistic therapist, my primary focus is to provide a natural, nurturing, safe space, where you feel comfortable and at ease to talk about anything that is living.  Our working relationship is one in which I respect you as a human in the world; your autonomy, your experiencing, your approach, your essence. I provide a judgement free space, where you can speak without fear about how this may be received.  Working in this way can enable you to connect with your authentic self, find your own voice and empower you to live the life that you want. 

I thoroughly enjoy working with a diverse range of individuals and am wholeheartedly committed to establishing comfort and connection with those with whom I work.

Training, qualifications & experience

My professional life

I have dedicated my life to supporting and working with others in various different environments. My professional roles have ranged from teaching, lecturing, mentoring, working with victims of crime and those affected by issues such as homelessness, ill-health, trauma and disability. 

Working as a qualified counsellor, in organisations and privately, enables me to utilise my professional skills, authentic way of being and passion to help and support those with whom I work.  I have a wide range of experience with individuals with varying different presenting issues including environmental, physical, social, spiritual, familial, relational and psychological.

Each person is unique and experiences things in different ways. I work with you just as you are, taking time and offering heartfelt presence to thoroughly understand your life and how you experience the world. 

A therapeutic relationship built in this way can allow you to connect to yourself,  trust your inner knowing, feel fully seen, heard and witnessed.  A space for you to develop and prosper.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
