About me

I am a fully qualified therapist working in an integrative way. I am a member of the British Association for counselling and psychotherapy (BACP).

I like to make a difference to peoples lives allowing clients to feel safe and that of not being judged, building of trust and gaining empowerment.

I have worked in vast areas including counselling children at place 2 be within a primary school setting, children aged 5-11 years old using play therapy.

I have trained in sexual and domestic abuse. I developed knowledge and skills in this area through training with the rape and sexual abuse counselling centre over the past 2 years. I have completed specialist training with Arch in sexual abuse and harbour in domestic abuse.

I also have an understanding of such through my own individual experiences, I feel this allows me to offer deep empathy and acknowledgement of those feelings and emotions that stem from such.

I have worked as a statutory advocate providing a voice to a variety of vulnerable adults including those with severe mental illness extending to those sectioned under the mental health act, diagnosed learning disabilities, dementia and autism. I have extensive experience with working with adults and children with autism as I worked for the autistic society and have an adult son with autism.

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.
