About me

Feeling stuck?
There are times when we have all found life difficult or overwhelming. Sometimes we find it hard to climb out of a rut we have got ourselves into.

Counselling can help
Being stuck and unable to see a way forward is very common, it can lead to anxiety, panic attacks, low mood and depression. Therapy sessions are a safe space to express your feelings and begin to understand your situation.

My hope is that each client embarks on a journey of self-discovery, to enhance understanding, acceptance and independence. As a person-centred counsellor, I aim to support you on this journey so that you feel heard and understood. 

I aim to provide a professional service with a down to earth approach, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, for older children, adults, and couples.
As an autism friendly practice, I offer a free 20 minute meet me session to discuss what to expect and any extra support that I can offer.
Pricing can be found under the fees & availability section below.

I specialise in trauma; I would describe this as a single event or a series of experiences that have not only impacted you at the time, but have also influenced the way you live your life now. I have experience with many varying issues, such as relationships, family issues, bereavement and stress, please send me a message or call me to discuss your needs.  

Where to find me
My practice is based in the Aura Business Centre at Mansfield House in Sleaford. Limited disabled access is available as my room is based on the ground floor, but there are some restrictions due to the age of the building, more information available on request.

I also work from an office at Autumn Park Business Centre in Grantham, availability here is limited to Wednesday morning and afternoon sessions. Disabled access is good.

If you would like to arrange an appointment or if you have any questions, please message me via email or text, including which office you prefer for sessions and a brief summary of why you feel you need counselling. I also offer a free 10 minute introduction chat, if you would prefer to talk rather than message. I aim to answer enquiries within 24hrs during weekdays, weekend enquiries may not receive a response until the next working day.

Training, qualifications & experience

My qualifications include:

  • Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills

My experience

I set up my own private practice 5 years ago, and before this I worked as a counsellor for an organisation that supported people of all ages who had been affected by sexual abuse, including partners and family members. I have also worked with students, both at a Lincoln school and at the University. 

Continuing Professional Development 

As a member of the BACP, I am committed to continually improving my knowledge base by completing at least 30 hours of CPD each year. This may be through reading, researching and attending courses relevant to my practice and my clients. 

My CPD training includes;

  • Couples counselling
  • Working online
  • Sexual abuse
  • Domestic abuse
  • Addiction
  • Dissociation of trauma
  • Working with shame
  • Suicide and self-harm
  • Autism 
  • Cognitive behaviour therapy diploma

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

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).
