I provide a non-judgemental and supportive space to help clients with a presenting need such as anxiety, depression, emotional distress, feelings of sadness or other conditions and offer the support that is right for you, based on your needs and preferences.
I work with both adults and young people virtually and face-to-face and am trained in a number of different counselling approaches and focus on each client as an individual.
I am a fully qualified and registered Counsellor with training and experience in various counselling techniques which I draw upon as well as incorporating creativity and other various tools into how I work, very much seeing each client as unique. I am trained in Integrative Counselling. As the name suggests this is a combined approach that brings together different elements of counselling therapies rather than a single approach being used in all situations. I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and specifically Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT) which focuses on identifying unhealthy beliefs and changing irrational beliefs into more rational ones. For some clients Logic-Based Therapy (LBT) a form of philosophical counselling, could provide an appropriate and relatable fit, in which I am also qualified.
I am based in Cambourne close to Cambridge in South Cambridgeshire (England) and can work in both English and Spanish. I have experience in working with adults, adolescents and children, those with Asperger syndrome, with traumas, relationship issues, work related problems and more and I work with clients all around the world. I am also a fully qualified Teacher and enjoyed a full-time career in teaching before training as a Counsellor (although I do continue to teach part-time as well as offer counselling within schools). Prior to teaching, I worked in the private sector, including as an Executive Assistant to a Director of a Multinational Corporation.
Next step In order for any therapy to work it helps if the client and therapist can work together. I offer an initial consultation free of charge to help understand and explore your needs and to see if there is a good fit. This is the first step to taking your journey forward.

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.
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.
