About me

 Sometimes people need a space they can talk about, explore and understand our feelings, relationships and concerns. I am a trained counsellor/psychotherapist and in a confidential, safe environment we can explore a broad range of thoughts, feelings and events that affect your day to day health, well-being and happiness, as well as any labels or diagnoses that affect you.

What issues do I work with?

I work in a general practice. This means I am trained to work with a wider variety of issues, including OCD, PTSD, anxiety, depression, relationships, intrusive thoughts or family issues. If you are unsure you can contact me or check my website

Who do I work with?

In my private practice I work 1:1 with young adults (14+) and adults (18+) on a wide variety of issues. I have worked with people from a wide variety of backgrounds.

In addition to general practice, I specialize in working with neurodiversity and people with learning disabilities. My website contains more details.

How many times/how long would I see you for?

I understand that no two people are the same, so we'll work together to build a relationship that suits your need. The work we do together can be adapted to suit your needs. Short and long term psychotherapy is available.

Often it is difficult when we begin to know what you need. Usually, after an assessment, we would discuss working to 6 sessions. In the 6th session we can review our work and discuss whether or not you would like to continue. This gives you some control over how many/frequently you would like to meet and whether or not you wish to continue. This is flexible, and I welcome any questions you might have about this, so we can work to suit you.

I can offer some evening times; please contact me if you would like more information.

What kind of therapy is this?

I integrate CBT, Person-Centred and Attachment therapy to help you explore, understand and grow, and support you facing the challenges life can present you with. More information about this is available on my website.

How would I start therapy?

If you would like to start counselling/psychotherapy with me, first we would arrange an agreeable time to meet for an assessment. I typically see clients at a discrete and comfortable space at Harland Works on John Street, near Bramall Lane.

During this session we can work together to find how to work together and discuss any concerns or anxieties you might have about counselling/psychotherapy. This is a great time to ask questions about myself or the process of counselling.

Assessments are up to 90 minutes long and charged at £50.

I have a question.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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).
