About me

Current spaces on Tuesday evening, please contact me for a registration form if interesting in starting counselling.

Thank you for reading my profile. I am an experienced registered counsellor/ psychotherapist with 14 years working in mental health services, currently offering counselling services for individuals in Peterborough and online.

Please contact me via email to explore how counselling could help. I offer a free 15 min phone call or alternatively we can set up an initial meeting with no obligation to commit to future sessions. Please note I'm only able to answer telephone calls in which an answerphone message is left.

Often it can be rare in life that we have the space to be able to reflect and process what is going on. I believe it is so important to feel comfortable with your therapist. I aim to create a relationship with you and provide a space in which you can talk about all aspects of your life without judgment or criticism.

I've been working within Psychology/ Counselling services for 14 years with a variety of experience with different concerns, issues and ways of working. My main training is within Psychodynamic counselling which aims to look at what maybe going on deep down, under the surface and how our early life experiences shape the way we view ourselves, the world and others in our lives. I aim to draw on these patterns and encourage you to observe and reflect on your own thoughts, emotions and beliefs.

I have a strong interest in addressing the specific challenges people face in today's fast-paced world. I have an interest in working with anxiety, intrusive thoughts, low self-esteem, attachment and relationship issues, and family dynamics.

I have a particular interest in working with millennials. I recognize the pervasive nature of anxiety in this demographic, often exacerbated by societal pressures, career demands, and the constant comparison fostered by social media. Through reflective space, I empower my clients to confront, explore and manage their anxiety effectively.

I'm experienced in helping clients address their low self-esteem through working collaboratively with clients to cultivate self-compassion and acceptance, helping them build a more positive self-image grounded in their inherent worth.

I support clients in understanding their attachment styles and navigating the complexities of modern relationships and interpersonal dynamics. By fostering open communication and trust, I help individuals build and sustain healthy, fulfilling relationships.

Additionally, I recognize the significance of family dynamics in shaping one's psychological well-being. In therapy, I provide a non-judgmental space for clients to explore and understand familial patterns, assisting them in navigating conflicts, setting boundaries, and healing intergenerational wounds.

Overall, my goal as a therapist is to support individuals in navigating the complexities of modern life, fostering resilience, and finding fulfilment in their personal and interpersonal experiences.

Sessions are at the same time each week and last 50 minutes. My approach (psychodynamic) involves weekly session, please note I am unable to offer monthly or fortnightly unless we are coming to end of our work together.

I feel very strongly that it is the counselling relationship that helps to effect change so I think it is important to see whether you feel comfortable working with me. I encourage clients to have an initial meeting to explore what has brought them to counselling and whether they feel my approach is right for them.

My practice is based in a specifically converted building at my home, this is a separate building from the main house and offers a comfortable and confidential location for clients. There is free on street parking and public transport links. Alternatively, if it is difficult for you to attend sessions physically I am able to offer online counselling using Zoom.

Please feel free to contact me either via telephone, email or via a contact form on my website (all links are above) with any questions or to set up an initial meeting. Please leave me an answerphone message if you wish for me to return your call. 

Please explore my website for more information about my practice, links to my blog and socials.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).
