About me

When life feels busy and out of balance, and it feels like you never have enough time to recover people often start to experience anxiety and feelings of being overwhelmed. Strangely at these times, it can be hard to say no to other people – even when you want to – and so time and space for yourself become even harder to find. You feel like you ‘should’ be able to cope so work hard to find solutions to the extent that people say you think too much, or that you’re hard on yourself. You feel trapped in a cycle you can't find your way out of.

In fact, these are all indications that you may be burned out. They are also a sign of how deeply you care. But sadly, the pressures of modern life tell us that we must strive to do more and be better. When you are burned out it doesn’t feel like there are enough hours in the day so something has to give and all too often, that something is time for yourself.

Counselling gives you a moment in the week that is just for you. It’s a time dedicated to slowing things down so that you can explore how and why the balance is ‘off’ in your life. By understanding this, you can start to see your way out of the trap, on your terms.

Training, qualifications & experience

As well as being a counsellor and life coach, I have personal experience of burnout which means I know how trapped and powerless you can feel when you are stuck in the cycle of burning out, taking a break and expecting everything to return to ‘normal’ only to find yourself back at burnout again. And I know just how hard it can be to break that cycle.

This means I have a unique insight that we can draw on to help you understand the relationship between stress, anxiety, burnout and fatigue and how they are affecting your mind, body and sense of self, the experiences that have lead you to this point and how you can move forward into a more balanced, healthier future. 

I work online or on the phone with people from all over the UK. I combine person-centred counselling with life coaching which means that I will work with you to find the approach that works best to help you find the answers, understanding and insight that you need in order to heal and break the cycle of burnout. 

People I have worked with tell me:

  • Their relationships have improved which means they start to feel more connected and less alone.
  • They are more able to say no and set boundaries which means they have more room to breathe, think more clearly and get more perspective.
  • They start to trust that things will be ok which gives them more curiosity to try new things.
  • They are more able to accept themselves in all their imperfect glory which means they are more able to be themselves.
  • They start to look forward to the future.

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

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
