About me

I am a nurse and midwife with many years’ experience in the NHS. I specialise in supporting those who have suffered trauma or baby loss during pregnancy or childbirth, such as miscarriages, stillbirth, neonatal loss, as well as antenatal and postnatal depression and trauma related to giving birth. I also support people with dementia and those who care for them. I offer a calm, confidential, and non-judgmental space where you will feel safe to explore your thoughts and feelings. I am an Integrative Counsellor which means I use elements of different approaches to consider your individual needs and circumstances. I will help you to make realistic changes and manage or cope with your challenges in a fulfilling way. If you would like to talk, I am here to listen. I work hard to listen, be attentive and understand my clients’ perspectives. I am committed to showing respect to every individual client

Member organisations

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.
