About me

Providing a safe and non-judgmental space, time in which you can talk in confidence. Whether it be that you are feeling anxious, sad, low or have been/are diagnosed with an additional need or learning disability we will, together, find an approach within counselling that feels comfortable for you and supports you through. 

Whether you are creative or thrive in the art of communication I provide different materials in which we can explore together to help interact and communicate your true thoughts and feelings. 

I have worked within the Special Educational needs setting for the past 9 years and believe that the skills I have learnt hear and those from my counselling qualification, often to hand in hand to help provide an inclusive space for all to be able to share how they are feeling. 

Please find more of my information over on my website:

Qualified in 2021 therapeutic counselling offering 1:1 person centred talking therapy.  I follow the BACP guidelines and am a member of the holistic therapy insurance.

Training, qualifications & experience

Since being qualified I have over 100 hours of therapy experience with children and young adults ranging from 8-18 within a grammar school setting and within my own private practice in Cookham. 

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.

Wheelchair user access
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.
