About me

I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am passionate about working with children and young people, as well as those who teach, support and care for them. I am inspired by young people's resilience and their ability to over-come difficult experiences. To be invited into their lives and to be a part of their growth and development is a privilege.

I am a humanistic person centred counsellor. This means that I follow the lead of my client and seek to really understand their experience. I aim to create a warm and welcoming space so that children, young people and adults feel safe and can begin to build a relationship of trust with me. I believe that when people feel accepted, valued and understood by a counsellor, they are able to explore difficult issues and can begin to make sense of their experiences and feelings. When this happens, the intensity of difficult feelings may lesson and become more manageable, options of ways forward might begin to emerge, and views or beliefs can change bringing about a new perspective and a new way of being.

​I am committed to continuing professional development. I attend regular training to update my knowledge and skills.

​I have strong ethical values and personal integrity.

I have a current enhanced DBS certificate.
