I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist. I have over 15 years’ experience working in mental health and social care settings. I have experience working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, self-worth, loneliness, relationship issues, loss and bereavement.
I have worked in the rehabilitation sector as part of the NHS helping people to understand and cope with, their behaviour whilst exploring deep-rooted feelings and belief systems. I have experience of working with people struggling to come to terms with chronic health conditions and managing the impact this has upon them and their families.
I hold particular interest and have experience working with survivors of domestic abuse and violence and the long term impact this can have on mental and physical health.
I offer a non-judgmental safe and confidential space in which to work, alongside a reparative, trusting and the therapeutic relationship
I have a consulting room in a quiet and discreet location in the centre of Market Harborough and in the centre of Leicester.
I currently offer evening and Saturday morning appointments.

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.

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).

I take the health and safety of all my clients as well as my own very seriously. During these challenging times my aim is to continue delivering therapy uninterrupted as much as possible while preventing cross infection. My aim is to continue to provide face to face sessions for everyone who does not fall into the risk category eligible for self-isolation.
My consulting rooms are being disinfected after each use. I am kindly asking everyone to clean their hands with antibacterial gel/soap etc in order to maintain the therapeutic space keeping it as clean as possible for everyone.
I also offer remote options which are:
• A telephone call session
• Video conferencing session using end to end encrypted apps such as Zoom/skype
• Walking session in an outdoor setting (for those who do not fall into the risk category)
