About me

We may all feel we need to talk to a counsellor at some point in our lives.  It can be daunting taking that first step to look for a counsellor.  It is easy to keep telling ourselves that we are ok and to brush issues aside or put them to the back of our mind. However, in doing this, they are still there, they don’t go away and may keep resurfacing.  Counselling can help you.  

Counselling is a unique experience that is based on building a trusting relationship between the client and the counsellor.  Having a confidential and safe space that is just for you. Knowing that you can talk freely about your concerns, work towards solutions or just off load is invaluable. We have such busy lives and finding that space enables you to put yourself first and work out what is right for you. 

I offer you that confidential and safe space. I work with you by listening and guiding you to find your own answers and way forward.  This will empower you in your life going forward.  I place emphasis on getting to know you and understanding each client’s needs. Counselling is different for everyone but it is based on building that trusting relationship. 

My training is in Person Centred Counselling but I use other counselling models and methods in my work, which include transactional analysis, CBT and mindfulness.  I also have a Diploma in Nutrition which I utilise due to the connection between gut and brain health.  

Every client is unique.  Every client brings something different to counselling, has different needs and wants different outcomes.  By listening to each client and working together we find an approach that suits you.  

I have a range of experience which includes anxiety, bereavement, depression, low mood, grief and loss.  I worked in a cancer charity, offering counselling to cancer patients, carers and bereaved.  I currently, also, work at a hospice offering loss and bereavement counselling.  

Counselling sessions last for 50 minutes.  I offer short and long term therapy.

Please contact me by phone, text or email if you would like to discuss counselling further and take that next step.

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).
