About me

I offer a non-judgemental space to come and talk about the issues you may not want to share with those close to you. I recognise that experiencing emotional distress can be due to experiencing significant trauma outside of your own control. Or perhaps you feel like the world in general is not set up for an individual like yourself. Many factors in life can bring us down. I aim to help you understand yourself better and find a way forward despite previous difficulties or trauma.

I strive to provide a calm and supportive therapy experience where you will not be blamed or judged for the difficulties you are experiencing. I will work with you at your own pace to talk through your difficulties in an emotionally safe way. I am open to working flexibly and creatively.

Please reach out so that we can have a free no obligation chat about what you might like to gain from therapy. I will be more than happy to explain how counselling can work and we can plan your therapy goals together.

Training, qualifications & experience

Training: Person-centred counselling
Degree/Diploma: Diploma in therapeutic counselling
Year Graduated: 2014

I completed my placements hours in a rape crisis centre. Whilst there I completed training hours around how sexual/domestic abuse impacts survivors. 

For the last 8 years I have been working with older teens and adults who are out of work or education. I have worked with multiple-issues and individuals from many diverse backgrounds.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Further information

I practice in a person-centred way, meaning I will work alongside you in whatever issues or goals you wish to talk about. I do not give advice as such but wish for you to feel empowered to make your own choices. I can include coping skills if you would find this helpful which may be based from dialectical behavioural therapy.
