I am a Trauma-Informed therapist who has cerebral palsy. I base my practice on the five principles. Safety, choice, collaboration, trustworthiness and empowerment. My clients aspire to discover how their individual histories impact them and their system (body). Everyone has their own stories, and through therapy and self-discovery, they can learn what they need to move forward. Trauma-informed therapy is for everybody. I am lead by you. You are the expert in your own life. I am just offering you a space to learn and grow. I specialise in Disability Counselling, Trauma and Pre-Trial Therapy. No one has walked in your shoes, and by understanding and respecting that, the journey to recovery can begin.
Training, qualifications & experience
Since qualifying, I have worked with many individuals with a wide range of issues from grief, depression, and anxiety. As well as my private practice, I also worked for Rotherham Abuse Counselling Service (ROTHACS), working with individuals dealing with many issues of abuse, be it physical, sexual and many more. I have also worked with individuals with disabilities on many matters, both directly related and indirectly related to their disability. As a therapist with cerebral palsy and a wheelchair user myself, I find my understanding can enhance my awareness when helping individuals work through what they bring.
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 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).
