About me

I am a qualified counsellor who works with children and young adults. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have been a member of the British Psychological Society (MBPs) for the past 12 years.

I view all children and young adults as being unique in how they think and feel, so I tailor the therapy to meet those needs for every child or young adult.

I work from my private practice in Shaftesbury or in certain conditions online and on the phone.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as an Integrative counsellor with the Iron Mill. I have also taken further diplomas with Surrey NHS in Family and Systemic Therapy, and in the Foundations of Analytical Psychology with the SAP in London.

Both of my Postgraduate Masters have focused on children and young adults. In Clinical Psychology, I focused on how childhood experiences of school and learning sometimes cause difficult feelings that can follow into adulthood. In my research Masters, I studied the impact of stress on young adults brains and how that can affect learning.

I am the Founder and Director of Westcountry SEN, an education service that supports all children and young adults who struggle in school.

Member organisations


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.
