About me

I am a fully trained counsellor and accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work from a private room in the Renaissance Therapy Centre in Harborne.

I hold a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Keele University, and am passionate about my work. I believe that the counselling relationship has the power to help you develop, grow and find your own solutions to your own issues. My role is not to advise or guide you, but to listen carefully and to join you on your journey to becoming a better version of yourself.

Counselling provides a space where you can explore and learn more about yourself, and where you can make changes for the better.

I always work collaboratively with clients, and our first session would be an opportunity to discuss how you want to approach counselling, and what your aims are. If you want to discuss this beforehand, send me a message and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked with clients from a diverse range of backgrounds in medical, professional and private contexts. I have particular experience working with loss, ilness, chronic pain, disability, stress, assertiveness, relationships and the 'big questions' about the purpose of life and what direction our lives are going in.
