People seek counselling for all sorts of different reasons. Maybe you are feeling anxious or depressed or are suffering from low self-worth. Perhaps you have been affected by painful life experiences, or maybe you are uncertain about why you feel the way you do. Whatever your reason, deciding to start therapy can be an important first step towards addressing your troubles.
Only you experience your life the way you experience it and therefore I will not judge or evaluate you or offer advice. Instead, I hope to facilitate your exploration of what it is that is troubling you in an understanding, empathic environment so that you may feel more comfortable with yourself and your life and may find a way forward that is good for you.
Finding a counsellor and beginning therapy can be daunting and it is important you find a counsellor you are happy with. This is why I offer a free introductory conversation. Whoever you are, whatever your issues, you will be treated with respect and without judgement. For more information of to arrange a session, please get in touch by phone, text or email.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained through Chester University, where I completed a Masters in Clinical Counselling, qualifying with distinction and gaining experience through counselling both survivors of abuse and students.
I have worked with people with a variety of different troubles, including sexual, physical and emotional abuse, the experience of coercive control, difficult family or relationship experience, low self-esteem, depression and anxiety.
As well as offering private counselling sessions, I am a volunteer counsellor at a charity which offers counselling to survivors of abuse.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
