About me

About me

My specialist areas in therapy are working with Trauma; domestic and sexual abuse, not limited to these types of issues I also work with anxiety, depression and eating disorders.

I have been in practice since 2016, my experience in counselling has been informed by my previous work in the health industry as a; holistic therapist, working in collaboration with the NHS and supporting people young and old with their therapeutic needs, such as providing counselling to children and adolescents, providing care for the elderly and as a support worker for those who have drug, alcohol and mental health issues.

Why might counselling be an option?

Have you ever felt as if those closest to aren't able to get you? or at times felt as if you don't know yourself?

Do you feel as if you are unable to confidently make your own choices or that others always want to make your choices for you?
Do you feel stuck, not knowing who to turn to?
Does it seem as if your nearest and dearest are unable to assist you in finding solutions to your problems?
Maybe those same people are contributing to the problem thus creating internal conflict and drama?
How is counselling beneficial?

Talking to someone who is objective can eliminate judgement and biased responses. It is empowering when you begin to connect the dots and understand the reasons behind your thoughts, feelings and behaviours from within the context of your life and personal experiences.

How I can help.

There is no right or wrong to counselling and that is because of the individuality and uniqueness of our personal experience and sense of self.

My role is to support you through your narrative and whenever necessary use aids and techniques to help you explore further, any areas where you might have difficulties gaining insights.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a diploma in therapeutic counselling and have been in practice for five year

Other training includes:

BSc holistic therapies and specialist training in domestic abuse and childhood trauma.

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
