About me

'There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you' (Maya Angelou)

We all have our own unique stories which can shape how we see ourselves and the world around us. Everyone faces challenges at some point in their lives which can impact on our mental wellbeing.

How I Can Help

I offer one to one counselling to work through your concerns in a warm, non-judgemental space, where you will feel safe. I am passionate about working inclusively with people from all walks of life and backgrounds. Whether you have had counselling before or are new to therapy I am dedicated to working with you. 

My counselling experience is diverse and includes working with people who have problems with anxiety, depression, low self esteem, work stress and relationship difficulties.

I will gently invite you to bring your whole self into the work. By talking and thinking about the different parts of your life and by exploring your relationships, unconscious themes and patterns may emerge. I will work with you entirely at your pace; working towards change needn't be forced nor rushed.

How Counselling Can Help

Counselling, which is often described as ‘talking therapy’ is a psychological exploration of emotional issues in confidence with a trained practitioner. This can help us to come to terms with our past; have greater self-awareness about our feelings and how we react. Counselling can be empowering and enable us to consider different perspectives and create shifts towards achieving a more healthier and balanced life.                                          

Counselling and You

  • At times do you find yourself unable to cope? Have you found that you feel unconnected, lost, stressed and overwhelmed?
  • Are you thinking about issues around your identity and questioning who you are?
  • Do you feel stuck and unable to move forward?
  • Have you had to deal with an accumulation of difficulties?
  • Have you experienced a life-changing event recently or in your past?
  • Or would you like a space just for you to talk to someone who will pay attention to what you have to say without feeling judged?

Whatever your challenges are, there are many ways that I will work with you to help you to better understand and think about your story. Only you know your story and only you can tell it. I am here to listen, to support, and to explore with you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, my counselling experience is varied and broad including working for the NHS, specialist mental health charities and the private sector. Outside of my private practice I also work with young people in schools. I have a Diploma in Adolescent and Schools Counselling from the Metanoia Institute. I am currently in training for my Diploma in Clinical Supervision at The Minster Centre.

As an Integrative Counsellor means my practice is informed by a range of theories that will depend on what will work best for you; essentially my approach is client-focussed. I work with the 'person' and not the 'label', this is what underpins my practice. 

I work from a transcultural perspective, this is an exploration into the unconscious impact of cultural and societal expectations on emotions, thoughts and behaviours. This allows you to bring your unique experience, history, and narrative into the therapy, this can be empowering and allows a deeper insight into your personal story.

As a registered member of the BACP I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework.This is very important to my practice as it follows a code of conduct for good practice.

Member organisations

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
