About me

There are many reasons why people seek counselling. Perhaps you notice recurring patterns in your life that you would like to break with; perhaps you would like your relationship to improve. Maybe you are suffering from anxiety or feel unable to move forward from something that has happened to you. .

Whatever your reasons for seeking counselling, I aim to provide a non-judgemental, confidential and safe environment for you to explore current issues or problems that you are facing. Counselling aims to open up possibilities for change offering you the chance to move forward towards your goals and live life as you would like to.

Some of the things that counselling can help with include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Low self-esteem
  • Past trauma or abuse
  • Identity issues
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Anger
  • Sleep problems


I work in an integrative way which means that I draw from a variety of therapeutic approaches in order to provide a service that meets your individual needs.

I work with individuals and couples. At an initial session, we can work together to explore whether counselling is right for you, and what you are hoping to gain from it.

Training, qualifications & experience

MA in relationship therapy (Accredited by BACP). I have undertaken extensive further training including counselling children and young people and working with mental health issues.

I am committed to maintaining my knowledge and being up to date on new developments in the field, so attend continuing professional development courses and workshops regularly. In addition to my private practice, I work for Relate with individuals, couples and young people.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

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.
