About me

Counselling is about getting to know your real self and finding ways to manage difficulties and develop your strengths. I offer a safe space where you can find your unique way to feel better and to succeed.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a B.Sc. in Psychology and Counselling, and a PGDip in Applied Psychology (Therapies), both from the University of Salford, as well as an MA in Counselling from the University of Manchester.

My approach is integrative and draws on a range of models, including Person-Centred Therapy, Compassionate Mind Approach and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

I have specialist training and experience in working with people affected by sexual abuse.

I have experience and understanding of working with people with Autism Spectrum Disorder and helping develop skills in social communication and emotion regulation.

I also have experience in working with people suffering with depression, anxiety, employment and relationship difficulties and learning difficulties.

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.
