About me

I offer a flexible approach to seeing clients as the first stages of therapy can often be the hardest.

Qualified for over 5 years with extensive experience of working with children and young people, however I have also worked with all age groups, particularly those recovering from abuse.

I offer a safe platform to enable my cleints to explore their feelings, thoughts and emotions at a pace that suits them unconditionally, empathic and non judgmental, adapting my therapeutic interventions to the clients needs.

Having an integrative approach as I believe we are all different, with different needs therefore I create a therapeutic environment that works for you.

I specialise in trauma, abuse, sudden loss and complex anxiety.

I also have life coaching experience, this may help you if you are de-motivated, struggling with work issues or maybe you just need a new direction.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.

I can also offer telephone counselling or other forms of media if required.
