About me

  • Currently offering face to face sessions with limited availability, zoom and telephone calls are another alternative if you aren’t local to Walsall.

Awarded degree in Humanistic Counselling BA(Hons) at University of Nottingham. An Individual Membership with the BACP.

Person centered therapy is at the core of my practice. This means you’re at the centre of the work and the sessions are all about you. Person centered therapy holds the belief that all of us have the power to find the best solutions for ourselves and make appropriate changes in our lives.

Committed to walk alongside you throughout your journey of self-discovery. Compassionate, non judgmental and I provide a haven for your personal growth.

All about Therapy

“Am I living in a way which is deeply satisfying to me, and which truly expresses me?” -Rogers

Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, in my sessions I promote a greater sense of self by empowering new perspectives and the adoption of new attitudes. I am a great believer in individuals being their own experts and empowering their decisions. I have the tools and professional experience to help you on your journey of self-discovery.

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.
