About me

I provide effective counselling within a safe, supportive and confidential environment either online or face-to-face.  When we meet I will listen to your concerns and work with you to develop a counselling plan, which will include strategies and techniques that best meet your needs.   

You might be coming to counselling for a variety of reasons.  I will work with you to address whatever it is that you are struggling with.  It may be something from your past, something that you are dealing with now, or both.  You may be feeling upset about a situation, be experiencing anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, family issues or concerns or have a diagnosis of ADHD.  You may have experienced a bereavement or loss or have relationship difficulties you want to address.  You may feel stuck or just want to understand yourself better. 

Whatever it is that you are bringing I will get alongside you, look with you at how things are and help you to find a way forward that is going to work for you.    Being heard and deeply listened to is not something we often experience in our day-to-day lives, however being heard and listened to can help us to make better sense of struggles or difficulties and find a way to feel better and process feelings and experiences and then find ways to manage better in your world. 

I will provide you with a welcoming safe and supportive space, online,  or at my Randolph Place Practice.  I am a Person-Centered Counsellor and since qualifying in 2010 I have undertaken numerous further in-depth training, including Family Counselling, Counselling Young People, Creative Play Therapy,  Coaching, Trauma, Childhood and Adult Attachment and ADHD training.  I also teach COSCA counselling skills and am currently teaching the  Person-Centered units of a COSCA Diploma Course and am a qualified Counselling Supervisor.

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).

Further information

I am an experienced counsellor working with adults I also have a wealth of experience of working with young people..  It has been a particularly tough time for young people recently with the pandemic and lockdown, the often negative and toxic impact of social media, pressure of exams and worries about the future all having a negative impact on our young people's mental health as never before.  I am able to meet and work with the young person in your life and support them to process their experiences and think about what is going to be helpful for them, including finding relevant coping strategies. 

I have a lived experience of ADHD and have a particular interest in this area.  I would be happy to hear from you to talk through with you how I could support you with this neuro-diversity.
