About me

At times in our lives, life can feel a bit too much, it can get complicated and overwhelming and you find yourself needing someone to listen to you, to understand you and provide support. I'm here to offer these to you and more, so let's talk!

I will talk with you, listen to you and support you to understand where you want to go, who you want to be and how to get there. It’s important to me that you feel valued, understood and safe to explore your thoughts and feelings, to help you make positive steps to move forward in your life the way you choose.

The decision to come to counselling can be nerve wracking and frightening but can also be the first step to bringing understanding and change to your life to get you back to the you that you want to be.

Sessions are offered via Telephone, Zoom and Outdoors (Walk and Talk Therapy). 

You can contact me via e-mail or telephone and we can arrange a brief consultation to talk about what you want from counselling and what I can offer and you can then decide if you want to book your first session.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked with a range of clients of all ages and from a variety of backgrounds who have presented issues including (but not limited to) Depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, loneliness, suicidal thoughts, domestic violence, bereavement and loss, perfectionism, low self-esteem/confidence, long term illness, relationship difficulties and life transitions.

I have also undertaken training with the Foundation for Infant Loss, developing my skills in grief and trauma surrounding pregnancy and infant loss

I have experience counselling for universities as well as domestic violence and bereavement charities.

Member organisations

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.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

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.
