About me

Are you anxious, depressed, feeling out of control and just don't know what to do? I can help with anxiety, self-esteem, confidence, relationship issues, eating disorders and any other general life issues. I offer a safe place to grow, process and learn about how you can help yourself , in an environment of care and compassion.

When things feel hopeless and tomorrow is scary, talking to a counsellor can be a lifeline.

At the moment, I’m working remotely using Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp or telephone counselling.

I am a qualified and accredited counsellor, and work with individuals as well as couples. I am also a Relate trained relationship counsellor which can also help with individual issues. I will work with you the best way for you and believe that there is no issue too large or too small. If your problems make your life hard and difficult, together we can work in a way that will allow for positive changes for the better. I will be with you on your journey, using integrative skills of person centered (putting you first), psychodynamic (looking at problems that may have a route source), transaction analysis (relating to others) and other modalities if appropriate.

I have training in a great many areas of counselling as well as being Relate trained in couple counselling.

"It was like looking in a mirror. I was able to see myself for who I really was and make changes in my life. Thank you so much"

I am married, with 2 older children, and have experience of all ages, stages and relationship changes. I share life’s unpredictability’s and challenges so can empathise with what you are going through.

When we return to face to face counselling I am very accessible with a BL1 postcode.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
