About me

Do you ever feel lost at sea in need of a guiding light? Or stuck in life and not sure why? You may feel alone like no one understands. All of these I can help with. I help people to unknot their emotions and make sense of their thought processes and way of ‘being’.

I work predominantly with trauma and the wide range of issues this brings such as PTSD, CPTSD, anxiety and depression. This trauma may be a result of childhood abuse or neglect or traumatic events that occurred later in life such as sexual or domestic abuse, disaster or other significant incidents that now affects your behaviours and thought processes. I help you to stabilise, come to terms with traumatic memories, integrate and move on.

At the heart of my therapeutic practice, I believe we are all unique individuals, with differing life experiences, as such, I take an integrative approach. This means I am trained in a diverse range of therapeutic models so I can tailor myself to truly be by your side, you will no longer be alone.

Offering you a space filled with warmth and empathy, I provide total and complete acceptance, this is a safe place for you to explore yourself without fear of judgement. I help you to find your own answers, providing you a sense of empowerment and autonomy, you will find your own voice.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Counselling Skills Certificate
  • Diploma in Integrative Counselling

Formerly a police officer, I specialised in supporting victims and survivors of domestic abuse, discriminatory abuse and sexual abuse. I later transferred into schools, pastorally supporting children and young adults, many of whom had experienced physical or sexual abuse, neglect or were heavily involved in gang related behaviours.

I have experience of working in specialist organisations including sexual abuse, domestic abuse and faith organisations, working with victims, survivors and perpetrators of abuse.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.
