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)

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.
