Counselling can be an insightful tool into our behaviours, thoughts and feelings. It helps us to understand and move forward. My approach is built on the belief that we all have the ability to change and overcome the things that are making us unhappy.
- Do you feel like things that happened in the past impact how you feel and act now?
- Do you get the feeling that something isn’t quite right but don’t know what?
- Do you the feel like you dislike more and more things about yourself?
- Do you feel your anxiety is holding you back?
- Do you have a list of bad foods and the length of it keeps getting longer?
- Do you feel something bad might happen if you don’t behave in a certain way?
- Do you feel you just want someone to talk to?
Whether it’s a sense that you’re just not happy or you have something specific you want to talk about, counselling can offer support with a number of things.
There are lots of different types of counselling. I work in a person-led, integrated way, which means I use a number of different trainings to inform our work together. This allows me to offer a tailored approach to our sessions. Sometimes we may talk about how you feel in the here and now, or talk about past experiences. Both of which can also be explored through more creative techniques such as using artwork, metaphors and grounding.
My role is to find what works best for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Humanistic Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I am also a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), and therefore work within their ethical and professional framework.
As well as private practice, I have worked for a number of years as a Counsellor in the education and charity sector, in organisations such as RISE and Walk Tall. Within this work, I have also delivered many mental health and wellbeing workshops.
I have lots of experience working with individuals to support them in overcoming challenges, many of which have been associated with self-esteem, anxiety and trauma.
What happens next?
Making the decision to start counselling may feel a bit anxiety provoking, but I aim to keep the process as simple as possible.
Get in touch for more information or to book your first session. I also offer a free, online 30 minute introductory session, which provides the chance to meet and answer any questions you may have.
During our first session, we can chat about what brings you to counselling and what you hope to gain. You'll then be able to book in further sessions or take some time to think about whether counselling with me, is right for you.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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).
