About me

I trust that health and wholeness is at the core of every person and believe that in an atmosphere of curiosity, creativity, exploration and acceptance we can move closer to this. I work relationally which means that the relationship we create together is the focus. I offer a space free from everyday assumptions and demands, that supports your will to grow. I am interested in what you bring and have a willingness to sit with the struggles and wounds that you have experienced to help you improve your quality of life and feel alive.

I believe counselling is like going on an adventure together. We may explore some unexpected places and discover aspects of you that have felt inaccessible or unobtainable. The intention is that having the courage to go on this adventure will help you grow into your life and truly be yourself, moving with what has been blocking you being whole. Counselling can support you to let life flow freely through your body, emotion, mind and spirit. Thus experiencing being in connection with yourself and others so you can be open and alive to all that life brings.

Training, qualifications & experience

I initially trained as an Occupational Therapist with many year’s experience and have a wide knowledge of working within mental health.

Through my extensive work in mental health I became interested in how people can ‘do’ but sometimes struggle with just ‘being’ and this led me towards completing my Advanced Diploma in Counselling several year ago.

More recently through my work in schools, colleges, the NHS and in private practice I have become curious about the connectedness of body and mind. I have completed a foundation in Biodynamic Massage and have a keen interest in working to free or unblock the stressors that people hold in their bodies.

I am also a founding member of Merulae which offers counselling, psychotherapy, training, holistic therapies and allied services.  For further details please contact us at enquiries@merulae.org

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Although symptoms or issues maybe be helpful to explore and hold a richness of information, I do not see you as a set of symptoms but value your humanness. I work relationally from the inside out and would recommend an intial meeting with me to see if we can work alongside each other with whatever it is that draws you to counselling.
