About me

I am a trauma informed Person-Centred counsellor who can work with young people and adults. You may want a space to explore difficult challenges or a chance to reflect on some matters from the past. You may also be looking for support for your child. I also work with young people and adults with neuro-diversity. I offer a warm, accepting, safe space to explore issues and look at your individual experiences. 

I work with all forms of abuse including domestic abuse, childhood sexual abuse and narcissistic abuse. I can work with aspects that are difficult to move on from such as feelings of shame, self-blame, intrusive thoughts, trauma and difficult memories. I also work with issues such as bullying, identity and relationship issues, family relationships. 

Whatever your reason is for accessing therapy, we will work at your own pace. I aim to provide a trusting relationship for you to feel as comfortable as possible.

Training, qualifications & experience

I volunteer at RASA Merseyside and have also worked with parents of children with additional needs at Positive Minds. I volunteered at Childline for a number of years and trained new volunteers. I also work in Higher Education and have researched the needs and outcomes of care experienced children for the last 20 years.

I offer Trauma-Informed Counselling, Clinical Hypnotherapy and the Rewind Technique (for flashbacks and nightmares). I have also undertaken Suicide First Aid Training.

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.
