About me

I am a Person-Centered Counsellor, which is a humanistic approach to counselling, and I enjoy learning about other modalities and bringing that knowledge into my practice. I believe that you are the expert on yourself and my hope is that in working together, without judgement and at your pace, you will learn more about yourself and trust your own decision-making process. 

I enjoy working with people of all cultures, walks of life, faiths and non, and have delivered over 1000 counselling sessions. 

Alongside my private practice I work within a secondary school on behalf of No5 Young Peoples Counselling Service. I have a background that includes being a teacher, Special Educational Needs Coordinator, mother, and volunteer within the community and local church. This experience gives me an idea of some of the issues you may be facing but I recognise that everyone’s life experience is unique to them.

If you are feeling anxious, depressed, sad, angry, lost, bereaved, low self-esteem, experiencing difficult emotions within present or past relationships counselling may be of help to you. This list is not exhaustive and during our initial phone consultation we will discuss whether counselling might meet your needs.

I look forward to speaking to you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified experienced counsellor and have worked for 2 charitable organisations seeing both adults and under 18's. My private practice is currently for over 18's.

Alongside my private practice I work for 2 days a week in a school in Reading as a school counsellor.  

My counselling qualifications are as follows:

  • Level 5 Certificate in Counselling Young People
  • Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Studies
  • Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills

I also have a BSc First Class Joint Honours degree in Psychology and Mathematics and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education.

I am an accredited member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics.

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.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

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.

There are stairs leading to the room but if you let me know of requirements a ramp will be installed prior to your visit. There is also disabled parking in the basement carpark with lift access to my room.
