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.

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.
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.
