About me

Animal assisted therapy is slowly being integrated into the mental health services within the UK. Now, I am offering a unique service of counselling children and young people with the assistance of animal assisted therapy. There is also the option of individual counselling without the animals. Working therapeutically with animals has proven to have many effective results such as a decrease in stress and anxiety, helping with anger management, improvements in physiological responses, among many others. I would be delighted to give more information should you be interested in this service.

I am an integrative counsellor, meaning that I use a variety of modalities that are tailored to your needs. One of these include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This works with your emotions, behaviours and reactions and determining how we can get the best outcome of any situation that you are in, whether it is a situation that triggers anxiety, stress, depression or any other mental difficulties.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have graduated with a Master's from the University of Northampton in Counselling Children and Young People as well as spent a year in New York at a residential treatment facility pursuing an internship in Animal Assisted Therapy.

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.

Key details

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.
