About me

Hello and welcome to my profile.  

Why you are looking for a therapist is it because:

You are looking for a space to reflect on your life and make changes without being told what to do?

Are you feeling sad, worried or just not yourself?

Have you experienced a trauma ie sexual abuse, domestic abuse, bullying, an accident or near death experience.

Are you ready to invest in your future and make yourself a priority in your life.  I can be alongside you on your journey providing  a safe, non judgemental and confidential space.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed my Degree in Person Centred Counselling at University of Cumbria in 2014 and since then I have completed various trainings which has included Babette Rothschild's Somatic Trauma Training  so I am therefore a qualified and extremely experienced counsellor and Somatic Trauma Therapist.

Since 2012 I have worked with clients who have experienced sexual and domestic abuse helping them to go from feeling a victim of the abuse, to a survivor to then thriving in their lives.  By understanding what has happened to them in the past has helped them to change how it affects them today.

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
