About me

If you've made it to this point in looking for support, well done. Now to choose a therapist who suits your needs both practically, and therapeutically. 

I work with people to reduce anxiety, make sense of the root of their problems and take charge of their life. I have a real interest in supporting people who are experiencing big life changes and transitions.. I recognise the impact that these can have on you, your job, your relationships, your confidence and your future. 

I also specialise in working with parents experiencing perinatal anxiety and pre & post natal depression. The term Perinatal includes the moment of pregnancy until your baby is around 2 years old. This is a huge transition period and it can be a time we are tested and exhausted. Sometimes, having travelled through the different stages of pregnancy, birth and post birth, past trauma can flare back up. During sessions, this is something we can explore which in turn can help you process and heal old wounds whilst understanding who you are now as a parent. In working in this area I also have experience supporting families who have experienced the devastating impacts of miscarriage, still births and SID. It is vital that you know that if you have suffered such a loss, that there is support for you too. 

I work with adults on a 1:1 basis both face to face and virtually for weekly 50 minute sessions. I will set out to understand what you are currently struggling with and what you want from therapy. By understanding more about what is making you access counselling - your hopes, fears and worries - we can work together to make sense of what is going on for you. 

Often what we are feeling anxious and uneasy about has a direct link to our past and our upbringing so we'll talk in-depth about your story and I'll support you to make links to understand the impact it is having on you now.

I recognise how challenging it can be to struggle in silence and then how vulnerable it can feel to ask for help. It is my role to support you through what you are facing in a safe and confidential space without fear of judgment.

Get in touch to discuss next steps and if I don't feel like I am the right therapist for you I can point you in the direction of another colleague.

Member organisations

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.
