About me

Your decision to look for counselling is the first step in helping you to move forward with whatever issue or difficulty that has prompted you to look for a counsellor at this time. I have experience of working with people with a whole range of issues and would like the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your needs.

I am a Person-Centred and Experiential therapist with a particular interest in trauma, anxiety and neurodiversity. I have experience of both short and long term work including issues relating to workplace stress and mental health.

I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.  Sessions last 50 minutes and are usually on a weekly basis at an agreed day and time.

My practice is within easy reach of Shepshed, Coalville, Ashby and Loughborough.

Young People
I have completed additional training to enable me to work with young people (14 to 18 years).

Current ways of working
At the moment I am working remotely via Zoom (or similar) or via telephone counselling. I normally see clients from my dedicated therapy room at home in Shepshed, Leicestershire.  Additionally I usually have some availability at counselling rooms in both Ashby and Loughborough.

Sign up for an initial assessment
Please call or message me to arrange a free 15 minute initial conversation where we can discuss your needs. Together we will decide if I am the best person to work with you.

We will then arrange an initial session to discuss in more depth what has brought you to therapy at this time. I will ask a range of questions to better understand your needs. We will also discuss how I work.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.

I am a Person Centred therapist and work with you in a holistic and relational way. I have undertaken further training in working with trauma and also neurodiversity (ASD, ADHD). I will discuss at the initial session whether you are looking for brief, short term or longer term counselling.

I am Accredited with UKCP and a Registered Member of the BACP. I have a Masters in Person Centred and Experiential Psychotherapy along with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology.

I have undertaken additional training to enable me to work with Young People (14 to 18 years). Past experience includes working as a teacher and trainer with both young people and adults.

Please do get in touch so we can discuss your requirements.

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.

My therapy room is easily accessible and is on the ground floor.
