About me

I offer a kind, compassionate, and nonjudgemental space for you to come in and talk about whatever is on your mind, whether it's things that happened a long time ago or something that's happened this past week. You are free to explore things at your own pace and in your own way, and I will ensure you feel safe to do so.

I am an experienced therapist, specialising in depression and trauma. I have helped many people sort through their feelings about depression, anxiety, burnout, work stress, and family problems, as well as issues arising from childhood trauma. I am particularly skilled in working with women who have survived abuse of many different kinds, whether it is verbal, physical, emotional, or sexual. However, I have worked with people who have had a huge variety of problems or experiences to work through and there is very little that would be considered "off-limits" in our work together.

Making the first contact can feel overwhelming – maybe a little frightening. Counselling and therapy is about helping you – whether that is a deep understanding of yourself, your life and why you are the way you are; making changes in your life; working through persistent problems that seem to come up over and over again; or simply getting some outside perspective on a situation that’s weighing on your mind – I am here to help.

Training, qualifications & experience

PGDip (Distinction) and MSc (Distinction) in Psychotherapeutic Counselling from Staffordshire University.

I have received training in:

Sexual violence, domestic violence, working with depression and anxiety, coping with suicidal thoughts, child sexual abuse survivors, post-traumatic stress disorder, survivors of FGM, bullying, issues around shame, self-care, and suicidal ideation.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
