About me

Life can be hard, it can be beautiful, and it can be everything in between. When life feels tough and unrelenting, it can be difficult to reach out and we can find ourselves struggling in silence against the tide. Compassion, kindness and genuine-ness all lie at the heart of the therapy that I offer. It is a meeting of two humans who experience life, and by working together, I hope that the therapeutic process is one that can help clients to heal and hold hope.

I am a Person Centred counsellor (although I do incorporate other therapies when appropriate/if requested) which means that I will be walking alongside you in your journey and be led by you. The power of someone walking alongside you in the most difficult times can be incredibly healing. To be seen, heard, and understood, is arguably one of the most empowering feelings that we as humans can experience. Having a counsellor who is empathic, open and allows the client to choose their direction, can facilitate real growth. I am also able to integrate into my practice different ways of working, and so can draw upon these when we think that it might be helpful. This is still led by you, but there is an open-ness to exploring what might be needed in the moment. I endeavour to create a safe space where we can explore and process the hard stuff, and also celebrate the good stuff. 

As an individual with intersecting identities, I understand the difficulties of facing barriers and oppressions. With social justice and advocacy in mind, I endeavour to create a space in which we work together so that new learnings and what I call ‘lightbulb moments’ can take place. Therapy is definitely a process, and I am committed to being fully present and walking alongside my clients.

I am an experienced therapist who is a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy). I have had the privilege of working (and volunteering) in a variety of settings including charitable organisations, higher education and within schools. I have worked in a regional LGBT organisation with the LGBTQ+ community where I have set up a Trans specific affirmative counselling service as well as working in the LGBT counselling service within the same organisation. I  have 2+ years of working within this community. I have experience of working with clients who bring all of life into the room, but particularly I have experience of working with clients who experience anxiety, depression, discrimination, loss, abuse, questions/exploration around gender and sexuality and trauma. I have experience of working with clients face to face, online and via telephone. I am currently undertaking a DProf at The University of Chester.

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
