About me

I was once told ‘this too will pass’ and I have found the difficulties in my own life have done so. However, I could not do it alone, as it felt too tough a journey to be on. Looking back today, I am glad I had a counsellor to listen to me and support me throughout my journey.

You may feel as I did overloaded, confused and questioning why?

I believe counselling gives us the space to get to know our real self. As your counsellor I will listen to you with empathy and compassion, help you see your strengths and show you kindness as you work through your challenges.

With my support, over time your difficulties too will pass and you will be able to lead the life you want.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm a very experienced therapist and educator and have been practicing therapeutically for over 20 years. I've provided support in a broad range of settings ranging from voluntary clinics, educational settings, corporate support services and within the ASN sector.

I am trained in a range of therapeutic modalities and I'm really happy to tailor sessions to your needs.

I specialise in providing support to individuals and families who are struggling to make sense of life events or struggling to deal with complex emotions.

I have worked extensively with young adults, who are challenged educationally by autism, dyslexia, ADHD.

My experience also lies within the college and university sector supporting those who are struggling with the pressures of modern life.

I am additionally trained by Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training.

I also support those who are challenged emotionally by self-esteem issues, anxiety disorders, body image and depression.

I am happy to discuss with you any areas of concern. Please call or email me so we can discuss how I can help you.

I can offer evening and weekend sessions.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
