About me

Sometimes life is hard and everyone has times where they struggle. I can offer a safe space to explore your feelings and problems and help you through difficult times.

I am an empathic, non-judgemental counsellor using integrative techniques to help you through your issues in order to lead a happier, more fulfilling life. I am predominately person-centred in the way that I let you lead the session whilst using techniques as needed to help you move forward in your life. I believe that every person and issue should be treated on an individual basis and so will I use the therapy techniques that suit you.

I have experience of working with a wide range of age groups including young people aged 16+. I understand how confusing and troubling teenage years can be and the issues surrounding this.

I am a BACP Accredited counsellor and I am registered with Axa, Aviva, Vitality and Bupa. As well as my private practice I also work for Health Assured and One Bright. I also work for Women centre as a Survive and Thrive counsellor working with victims of domestic abuse which includes dealing with trauma. I have previously worked for Rochdale and district Mind and Noahs Ark centre in Halifax where I have supported a very diverse range of clients and issues. I have particular specialisms in anxiety, depression, relationship issues, autism, self-esteem, PTSD and abuse and I work together with clients to help them achieve their goals and lead a more fulfilling life. Often past experiences can cause problems and behaviours in the present and therefore we may need to explore this in order for you to move forward in your future life goals.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
