About me

Hi,  I am qualified and experienced counsellor working with both adults and young people (aged 13+) offering a professional and confidential service where first and foremost you will feel heard and understood.

There are many reasons that bring people to counselling and there are many different ways in which therapists work however one of the most important aspects of therapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client therefore I offer a free initial consultation to allow us the opportunity to meet.  You will be able to ask any questions you may have about therapy and gain an understanding of how I work.  This allows us both to make an informed decision about working together.

Good counselling will feel safe, supportive, compassionate and free from judgements or assumptions. With the right conditions we can explore, understand and reflect on your current situation or any experiences you find yourself carrying or repeating.
Through the counselling process you will have the opportunity to develop insight and self awareness empowering you to find the answers or resolutions that are right for you and which will enable you to positively move forward in your life.

I offer both short term and long term counselling working with issues including, but not limited to, trauma, stress, anxiety, depression, anger, self harm, self esteem, relationship issues and childhood issues.  I also have good working knowledge of more complex Mental Health issues.

I am a member of the BACP and I work within their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.  I recommend you have a look at their website to gain an understanding of what to expect from your chosen therapist: https://www.bacp.co.uk/about-therapy/what-happens-in-therapy/

Along side my private practice I work as a Senior Mental Health Family Care Practitioner for CHUMS.  Previously I managed services for Wellingborough Mind which included supporting a team of counsellors in a busy counselling service.  Prior to this role I worked as a counsellor for a local secondary school where I worked with young people aged 11-18. 
I began my counselling career with Kettering Youth Information as a student counsellor and I progressed to Team Leader, supporting  their team of counsellors and managing their counselling service.

I am based in a village location where there is ample free parking.  It is within easy reach of the A14 and A45 offering easy access from Wellingborough, Oundle, Thrapston, Rushden, Kettering, Corby, Northampton, Rothwell and surrounding areas.

If you would like to learn more about how we can work together please do contact me.
