About me

Specializing in helping families to flourish. I offer specialist counselling to children struggling to cope with anxiety relating to everyday life and I also support parents who feel the pressure that modern day life puts upon them.

My adult counselling is very client focused. We explore the problems, frustrations, disappointments and pain in a confidential and non-judgemental way. I work towards empowering the client to make changes within their lives. This very much focuses on the needs and passions of the client, after all, how do we support our family if we feel exhausted, unhappy and disillusioned?

I counsel children from the relaxed environment of my playroom. Offering a safe space to express and understand their emotions and worries. I use of a variety of materials including arts and crafts, crystals and relaxation and mindful techniques for those who struggle to find the words to explain how it all feels. We explore coping strategies and build resilience through self-empowerment.

I am very experienced in counselling children with high anxiety and low self-worth. I also have first hand experience of working with clients with Autism, ADHD, ADD and Dyslexia etc.

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.
