About me

How can Counselling help?

Sometimes we can all feel overwhelmed. If you are struggling in life and want to think and feel differently about your situation, then counselling may help by working through your issues. Experiences can often cause strong feelings of anger, fear or pain and by talking and understanding your individual situation you can begin to lessen the pain. Counselling may help you to manage the anxiety, anger and any other emotions you may be experiencing, by working together we can look at areas that you would like to work on, to enable you to find ways of coping.

How can I help?

I will provide you with support and understanding to help you through your journey. I offer clients a safe place to fully explore thoughts, feelings, issues, fears, difficulties, choices and opportunities by allowing you to talk confidentially and be heard and listened to without being judged, enabling you to understand your feelings which may be causing you distress and by giving you greater self-awareness and sense of empowerment, leading you to make more meaningful changes in your life.

I am a fully qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist and a registered member of BACP. I hold a current DBS and fully insured and attend regular CPD training courses for my professional development.

I have over 16 years experience of working with young people within school environment. I also have vast experience of working with adults supporting them with emotions of rape, domestic violence trauma and complex issues. I also offer couples relationship counselling.

My private practice is located in Oadby, with client parking and is easily accessible by public transport.

What can you expect from your first session?

An informal chat to discuss what you would like from counselling. To see if I am the right counsellor for you as it is important to find a therapist that you can trust and feel comfortable with. Call or email me to make an appointment.

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.

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.

Wheelchair user access

I can offer telephone counselling if accessibility is an issue for you.
