About me

Why seek therapeutic support? Talking openly to a qualified counsellor can help an individual reflect on patterns, thoughts and feelings with the aim of self acceptance and healing. For therapy to be helpful the relationship with your counsellor determines that success. Research has shown that regardless of the type of therapy a person undertakes, it is how they feel in the relationship with their therapist that provides the most effective change. In my experience my warm and personable demeanour brings a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere to sessions and I have seen true healing take place in this informal and safe environment.

I began my studies in counselling in 2011. I was always interested in emotions and our abilities to connect as human beings. I wondered if I could help others when I felt things so strongly myself but I have since learned through years of experience with a diverse client base that this is an asset. Empathy and validation are the key foundations of my work and I think finding an understanding of a clients perspective helps them in turn to find solutions for peace of mind for and within themselves. Working in this client centred way has been incredibly fulfilling these last few years and having my own practice allows for real freedom to choose how we work together.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience helping clients who suffered from Depression, Anxiety, Complex Grief, Eating disorders, Low Self Esteem, and fertility and maternal mental health issues. I also have experience with parents of children with disabilities, neurodivergent relationships and parenting in general.  I will be non judgmental to work with any topics or issues you would like to explore.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
