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

BACP

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.

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.

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
