About me

I have over 9 years therapeutic experience of private and organisational person centred counselling, and am a member of the BACP.

I completed my Diploma in Counselling at Joseph Pristley College qualifying me as a therapist, in 2011. I then returned to education at Leeds Becker University where I gained a BSc in Counselling and psychotherapy in 2014.

My early career started with ongoing training alongside 1 academic year of work with children aged 5-11 in a school environment providing 1:1 therapeutic interventions. My work there also included devising and delivering workshops to other staff members within the school environment to help gain and maintain relationships with other piers.

I have 3 years experience working with mild mental health issues within an organisation, with clients aged 18+ displaying/presenting issues such as, but not exclusive to:

  • OCD
  • Addiction
  • Loss/bereavement
  • Fertility issues
  • Relationship issues
  • Depression/anxiety
  • Abuse – sexual, emotional and physical
  • Family problems

I currently have my own private practice which is based in Tingley.

1 of my passions is the work at Barnsley Rape Crisis Service’s where I have worked with clients aged 11-18 previously and currently clients age 18+ who have been impacted by sexual violence. I have 8 years experience in this capacity and extensive additional training in this and similar fields.

For approximately 2 years I have also been working closely with a company to support gambling addicts, providing 1:1 and couples sessions for those impacted by addiction.

I am currently in my second year of MSc in psychosexual therapy, and can provide trainee psychosexual and couples sessions

I am committed to providing a safe/confidential environment for all clients encouraging a good therapeutic relationship which allows clients to explore their thoughts and support them through there journey to understand and change their current life situation.

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.
