About me

Taking the first step towards counselling can feel daunting.  I offer a safe, warm, confidential space for you to explore the difficulties that you are currently facing.

When you get in touch by email or phone, I will invite you to attend an initial session which will last for 50 minutes. This will be an opportunity for us to discuss what you are looking for from counselling and see how well we work together.

Counselling and therapy support you to work through your difficulties and move on from feeling stuck.  They help you develop a more honest relationship with yourself. By gaining a deeper understanding of some of the things that are causing you distress – both in the world around you and within yourself – you are able to see things more clearly and in different ways.

I know from my own personal experiences of therapy that it can both offer support in times of acute need, and be a crucial part in our ongoing journeys of personal development.

The best way to find out if counselling is for you, is to give it a go.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), the largest and broadest association for members of the counselling professions in the UK. As such I work with and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework.

I have a Level 4 Diploma in Counselling and a 1st class degree in Sociology and Gender Studies.

I have worked therapeutically in a university setting and in private practice with people from a wide variety of cultures, ages and backgrounds.

I have been working in the helping professions since 2010, where I have provided practical and emotional support to people experiencing a range of mental health difficulties.

As a manager at Centre 33 in Cambridge, I worked directly with clients and supported the administration and oversight of the counselling service.

I devised and delivered workshops on mental health, sexual health and healthy relationships, working in collaboration with the County Council Youth Support Service, The Kite Trust and Cambridge Rape Crisis.

I am a qualified Mental Health First Aider.

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.
