Thank-you for taking the time to view my profile.
I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I work with an Integrative approach and I am trained in a number of theoretical disciplines. In addition to my private practice that has been operative in Wombourne and Sedgley for several years, I have worked for number of years as the lead Counsellor with a local end of life care (EOLC) charity.
I am a Recognised provider for Aviva, AXA PPP, BUPA, Vitalityhealth (formally Pruhealth) insurance companies and I am an approved therapist for counselling students studying at Keele University and other H/E organisations
I offer online (zoom) or telephone sessions to all clients and supervisees who wish to access therapy or supervision in this way.
At some point in life everyone faces fear, crisis and Issues. In everyday situations people cope and usually manage to get by. At other times or major life events, a person’s coping mechanisms may not work as well as they have done previously. This is where counselling, often referred to as ‘talking therapy’ comes into motion.
Counselling is for anyone struggling to come to terms with any of life’s events, including the associated emotional pain and distress that accompany difficulties. This can also be inclusive of general dissatisfaction with life as a whole. Counselling is a personal, open relationship that offers a safe environment to work through life’s complications and trauma in an unbiased non-judgmental way.
This allows for the process of transition, healing and an opportunity to explore options that make for better coping strategies and decision making. The ideal aim is to equip a person for the here and now in an individual way that is bespoke to their future life plans and paths.
Training, qualifications & experience

I have a wealth of experience as a practitioner working with adults and adolescents (11-18) with various emotional and behavioural issues.
In addition to this I have a solid background in the fields of mentoring and Coaching and experience of working as team practitioner supporting emotional intelligence.
I have been professionally trained in the disciplines of Personal centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT), Transactional analysis and Integrative Psychotherapies.
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 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.
