About me

I am a warm, caring, compassionate and experienced therapist for children, young people and adults who struggle with everyday anxieties, having extensive experience of successful outcomes with individuals who may feel marginalised and isolated in their lives, through peer pressure and relationships with others.

For Children and Young People - counselling differs from that offered to counselling adults.  A child's age specific difficulties and their development will determine the method I use to support children in expressing their thoughts, feelings and physical emotions. Working together ensures a positive outcome while covering issues such as Trauma, sexual abuse, anxiety, depression, self- harm, bullying and low self-esteem. I have a warm and welcoming approach working creatively using music, play and art to support children and young people to explore and help to resolve problems through talk therapy and therapeutic play.  The preferred approach is always agreed with the child or young person.

I have extensive knowledge and experience in using a variety of therapeutic approaches, such as CBT, Psychodynamic and Humanistic which is tailored to the individuals' needs for all age groups.  My experience of working with adults extends into areas of trauma emotional, psychological, sexual and physical abuse, attachment issues anxiety and depression.

The aim of counselling for children and young people is to help them cope better with their thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental and safe environment.

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.
