I am a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Before training to be a counsellor I worked as a Communications Officer for 15 years dealing with different situations which could range from people being in mental health crisis to individuals in severe distress. My love for wanting to help others and finding depth beyond my work limitations was the reason I chose to train to be a counsellor, and now I can offer full support to individuals in need.
I work as a Bereavement Counsellor at a hospice and I also work at a primary and secondary school counselling children through art, play and sand tray therapy. I am trained in multiple therapeutic approaches and can apply the method that suits the client best. Everyone is different and I look to provide a bespoke service tailored to the individuals needs.
Training, qualifications & experience

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.
