Do you feel that something is not right in your life but don’t fully understand it, and have no one to talk to about it? Do you want to improve your confidence? Learn ways to deal with the stress of everyday life? Help relieve anxiety and depression? Improve relationships? Do you feel overwhelmed and desperate? Then counselling may be for you. These are just a few of the areas where I help adults make positive changes in their lives through counselling.
I am a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist and hypnotherapist based in Tickhill, Doncaster. I offer a confidential service in a private, professional and safe environment. I am friendly and approachable.
I use a person centred and integrative approach which means that I draw on a number of different theories and practices to tailor something that best fits you. In a non-judgemental way I will help you explore your thoughts, feelings and issues eventually moving to a point where together we can identify ways to help you move forward.
I work with late teens through to all ages of adults and have experience of working with a range of issues including: Abuse (sexual, emotional and physical), Anger Management, Anxiety, Bereavement, Child Related Issues, Depression, Low Self Confidence, Low Self Esteem, Panic Attacks, Phobias, Relationship Issues, Self Harm, Stress, Trauma, Work Related Issues.
I have a special interest in working with stress, anxiety and depression.
I love working as a counsellor. I decided to train as a counsellor due to my genuine interest in others and from my desire to make a positive and meaningful contribution to the lives of those experiencing distress. When a client experiences that “penny dropping moment” where something suddenly makes sense to them, I feel privileged to have been part of that. Seeing people grow and move forward through their own abilities is extremely rewarding.

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.
The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society
This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.
In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
