About me

With recent global events I have noticed an increase in anxiety, relationship difficulties and depression. Experiences over the last few years may have caused you to re-evaluate what things you place value on or highlighted areas of your life you would like to explore further.

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.

There are many different reasons why you maybe looking for counselling, you may be struggling with anxiety or depression. You may be having relationship difficulties, loss, trauma, self-esteem issues, identity issues, attachment issues, stress, anger or other difficulties in processing and managing your thoughts and feelings.

I'm particularly interested in working with 'millennials', those in their 20s and 30s. This label has often been used in a negative way in the media, I feel that this generation have specific pressures, stresses and experiences that are unique. This generation is becoming more increasingly aware of mental health problems and the value of talking and exploring these. I am passionate about working with 'millennials' and providing a non judgmental space to explore, gain insight and support.

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 counsellor. 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 over 12 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.

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. If you are looking for less than weekly sessions there are other counselling approaches that you can explore.

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. I am also able to rent a room just outside of the city centre in Peterborough. Both locations have 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.

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.
