About me

Life is an unknown factor, and it may often involve upsetting, stressful, or traumatic events that can negatively impact how we think, feel, and cope day to day. You may have anxiety and depression and struggle with issues of low self-esteem and suicidal thoughts. Or you may have intrusive thoughts and problems controlling your anger and impulsiveness. Your thoughts and feelings may be impacting the relationships around you, or maybe your relationships are impacting you. Maybe you are struggling with neurodiversity in a neurotypical world. Whatever your circumstances, I can help you to understand and interpret your thoughts and feelings in a safe and non-judgmental space, whether you are facing new troubles or struggling to cope long term. I will help you explore your inner world of thoughts and feelings so you can improve your physical and mental well-being. I also offer coping techniques within CBT frameworks to reduce intensity/frequency of negative thoughts, images, and physical sensations (panic attacks etc). Please note I do not offer face to face sessions 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BSc in Psychology and Sociology and a BACP accredited MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I also have training in CBT frameworks and brief solution focused therapy. 

I have almost 9 years of experience in supporting individuals with a wide range of mental health issues. Outside of private work, I also work several hours a week as a therapist within not for profit organisations. 

My specialisms include anxiety, low mood/depression, self esteem/confidence, relationship issues, ADHD and ASD, and coping with trauma. I also have particular experience in working with adolescents and under 30s. I consistently undertake training opportunities so I am up to date in theory and techniques to offer you the best support. 

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

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.

There is no obligation to book a session with me during or after this intro call. Please note I do not offer face to face sessions

When I work

Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun

Please note I do have very limited session slots available. Please email or send an enquiry via counselling directory. I do not answer phone calls due to history of nuisance/spam.

Further information

Please contact me by email or by text on 07546 279803. If you phone please leave a voicemail as I do not answer calls due to history of nuisance/spam - I’ll get back to you as soon as I can! 

I offer a free initial telephone consultation (up to 20 minutes), where we may spend time going over basic information, such as your preferred pronouns, any previous access to therapy, as well as the main issues you are facing at the moment. It will mostly be an informal chat to see if you feel comfortable speaking with me. We may discuss your counselling goals, a brief timeline of major events in your life that have impacted your thoughts, feelings, or behaviours, and I will try to answer any questions you may have around the counselling process. It is a big leap of faith to tell someone our inner most thoughts and feelings; My main priority is for you to feel safe and comfortable whilst we are talking. Sessions are preferred on a weekly basis to offer the most thorough counselling and support, however I also offer fortnightly or monthly sessions to align with your budgeting, processing, or scheduling.
