About me

Online sessions available - It can sometimes be difficult to gain perspective on our lives or have our feelings acknowledged. In counselling I provide a safe, empathic and non-judgemental space in which you can explore pain, confusion and difficulty. I can help you explore feeling low or anxious and together we can draw out your innate resources to help you to cope. As an integrative counsellor I believe a good counselling relationship is the most significant factor, and I draw on a range of techniques to help you develop self-awareness and self-compassion:

We may look at how the past has impacted on your life, affecting relationships and contributing to repeating patterns. I particularly value looking at self-worth, self-esteem, past neglect and emotional and narcissistic abuse. We may look at how you are coping with transition, change, loss or a feeling of being 'stuck' and having trouble making decisions.

Whatever you are facing, please get in touch for a phone consultation to discuss your needs and availability ahead of arranging a session.

All sessions are currently taking place online.

Training, qualifications & experience

My background is in education and I have a strong interest in literature, music and the arts. I have years of experience working with young adults outside of counselling and through my training and understand the many challenges of this difficult life-stage. I particularly value looking at past neglect and emotional abuse and its enduring effects.

My experience includes NHS IAPT service and counselling with young people ages 16-25.

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.

Accessibility

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.
