About me

Do you feel like life is too difficult sometimes? Are you struggling to cope with issues, lacking in self-confidence or do you just feel lost, overwhelmed and unsure of a way forward? If you are looking to make positive changes in your life and would like some help, I can offer a safe, non-judgemental space where we can work together to gain a clearer understanding of your situation. 

I am passionate about helping people and have worked with clients who are experiencing a range of difficulties. I am a warm, kind, gentle person with an approach that is tailored to your needs and at your pace. I can support you to work through your issues and find new ways of coping so that you can overcome what is troubling you.

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.

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.

Further information


'I couldn't recommend Natalie highly enough as there are not the words to describe how much she has helped me turn my life around . Having struggled with mental health and anxiety for over 10 years and feeling that the doctors and prescriptions were no longer working for me, I reluctantly approached Natalie for guidance. In the 4 months since therapy began, I have seen a positive impact on both my working and family life due to the changes and realisations that Natalie has helped me with. Natalie's approach is patient, probing & calming helping gain my trust almost immediately.'

' I still see Natalie weekly and will be forever grateful for her help  S'

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.
