About me

Welcome to my page, I'm Kay, an experienced therapist and a former GB gymnast. My unique background in international athletics has granted me a profound understanding of the effects of long-term stress and exhaustion on both mind and body.

Perhaps you find yourself in a similar state, worn thin by the pressures of life and existing more in a mode of survival than truly living. If this resonates with you, therapy can offer a sanctuary, a space for introspection and understanding, a beacon guiding you towards change.

I want you to know that your well-being is my priority. My role is to provide a nurturing environment that is free from judgement, enabling you to explore your concerns at a pace that feels right for you. Your journey with me isn't just about addressing issues, but also about embracing your potential for self-efficacy and self-actualisation.

Imagine embarking on a journey towards wellness, where you are met with compassion and understanding. A safe, therapeutic relationship can be your first step towards resolving the obstacles you're facing and setting course for a more fulfilled life.

My commitment to you extends beyond just helping you navigate through your current distress. Together, we can break the cycles that hold you back, and instil hope for a brighter future. Please remember, no matter how deep your current pain, you are not alone. There is a way forward, and I'm here to help you find it.

I look forward to supporting you on your journey towards wellness.

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.

Accredited register membership
