About me

I’m a fully qualified integrative counsellor and coach. I help individuals who want more than traditional counselling or coaching can offer alone, providing a safe and confidential space for exploration and growth. Working together, we can explore current and past difficulties, and I can also offer you opportunities to look forward, learning and applying unique tools to tackle whatever the future brings. Working this way allows meaningful healing and lasting change to be achieved. We are all unique and there is no ‘one size fits all’ model - I will always work with you as an individual. I work with people not problems!

I can’t promise the process will always be easy, but I can offer a respectful, confidential and non-judgemental environment to explore whatever life has thrown your way. I understand that the decision to come to counselling requires courage. Facing ourselves and our difficulties is never an easy task. 

To be able to explore overwhelming feelings without feeling judged requires trust to be present and building a strong therapeutic relationship is central to my approach. Together we will explore your difficulties and move forward towards meaningful change and growth in your life.

Opening up to someone outside of your friends and family circle can be helpful to see things from a different perspective. The confidentiality and non-judgemental approach offered at the heart of therapy means you can feel free to explore even the most difficult feelings, allowing you to feel seen and heard.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a PgDip in Integrative Counselling and Coaching from the University of East London, and am a registered member of the BACP, abiding by their ethical guidelines.

I work with the Personal Consultancy model, which is a framework combining counselling (to rebalance) and coaching (enabling growth) techniques. It offers structure to therapeutic practice that allows scope for you to explore, identify, restore and bring long-lasting change. It is a map to navigate through your journey; building strong foundations along with skills and courage to achieve your aspirations.

Metaphorically speaking, counselling can be seen as strengthening the foundations of a house whereas coaching is working on the house itself.

The main areas of my work are with anxiety, depression, trauma, identity, self esteem, relationship and family issues and bereavement. I also have experience working with postnatal women struggling with anxiety, depression and adjustment issues.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
