About me

I am a qualified person-centred counsellor and encompass a holistic approach - acknowledging the mind and body connection. 

I work without judgement, creating a safe, confidential space where you can be yourself. A place to feel truly seen, valued, heard, and understood.

The ebbs and flows of my own life have helped to inform my practice and enables me to connect with you at depth.

I have worked with many people through a range of difficulties. Primarily, depression, anxiety, self-esteem/self-confidence issues, cancer diagnoses as well as death, dying, and bereavement. 

I currently operate solely online or over the phone and am certified to work via technology. 

Students:
I know firsthand that the cost associated with training in the counselling profession can soon mount up. In response, I dedicate a limited amount of spaces to student counsellors at a discounted rate. This is in place to support individuals who are required to obtain personal therapy hours as part of undertaking academic counselling studies and can be viewed via KT Therapy's website. In addition, I have paperwork to evidence your attendance for your training provider when required.

Alongside private practice, I volunteer for a local charity and work with organisations to support individuals emotional wellbeing.

Having previously trained in NZ, I undertook Counselling Studies in the UK to meet requirements. 

  • Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Online & Telephone Counselling Certificate (80 Hours CPD)
  • Certificate in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Certificate in Person-Centred Counselling
  • Evolve Safeguarding Adults Level 2

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.

Further information

Coming from NZ, I am a chilled individual, offering a relaxed and calm counselling environment. 

I can’t promise you quick relief from what brings you to counselling but what I can promise, is my dedication and commitment towards you and your therapeutic goals.

The counselling process explores deeply personal material so it's important that you feel comfortable and find the right counsellor for you. 

The first session is a little different to all others. I will ask you some questions to help me to gain an understanding of what has brought you to counselling. This helps us to gain a sense of if it feels right for us to work together. 

You can find more information on my website or you are more than welcome to send me an email with any questions or concerns you may have prior to booking a session. Alternatively, I also offer a free (no-obligation) short phone call to discuss these.
