About me

I'm a qualified, trauma-informed counsellor and I specialise in supporting people who have experienced trauma. It could be one incident or something that happened over a long period of time. You may not always know if you've been affected by trauma. Some of the ways it can show up in your daily life are anxiety, depression, anger, addiction, low self-esteem, problems with sleep, lack of libido, social detachment, loneliness, stress and overwhelm.

Are you feeling, anxious, depressed, or overwhelmed or are general life events impacting you? If any of these sound familiar and your mental health is suffering, it doesn't have to stay that way. I provide face-to-face sessions from my home garden office, as well as online.

  • Counsellor at a Women’s Support Centre
  • Understanding Personality Disorder - Certificate from NHS
  • Trauma-Informed Interventions

I'm an Integrative therapist, which essentially means I use a tailored approach to suit you and your needs. I work on building a relationship and gaining your trust so you feel comfortable talking about your experiences.

Together, we will explore your past and present feelings in order to process them and move forward with a better understanding of yourself. Building your self-awareness can lead to clarity and more informed decisions in your day-to-day life. This can provide relief from anxieties and intrusive thoughts, creating a more content and peaceful thought process.

Counselling can feel daunting at first, which is why I offer a free no-obligation 15-minute consultation. Please click the button or email me to book an intro call. You can use this time how you wish. It's a great opportunity for us to get to know each other, explore what's going on for you and if you feel happy to work with me. 

I work with adults over 18 years and offer both short-term and open-ended counselling.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Level 3 Diploma in Counselling
  • Level 2 Certificate in Counselling  

Professional Development
I continue to participate in regular training and workshops, which have recently included certificates in the following:

  • Trauma-Informed Interventions for Therapists
  • Using IFS to Heal Traumatic Wounds
  • Understanding and Managing Loneliness
  • Understanding Personality Disorder
  • Exploring Suicide Risk

I have experience working with people who have been involved with the criminal justice system, working with people from all different backgrounds. I have also volunteered at a Women’s Support Centre. Here I supported women who experienced various traumas and abuse throughout their lives. Witnessing people’s growth and improvement in their mental health gave me a true passion for helping people.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), using their ethical framework to ensure we work safely together and stay focused on your goals.

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

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.

Further information

Having spent 15 years working in Learning & Development, I became fascinated with 'what makes us tick', and how each of our unique experiences shape our thoughts and behaviours in different ways. This is one of the reasons I came across counselling and became passionate about helping people process their emotions and work towards healing.

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.
