About me

Sometimes we may find that there are obstacles in life that prevent us from achieving personal growth and well-being.  Such obstacles can be caused by childhood experiences, traumatic events or difficult relationships.  

Perhaps you are at a stage where you wish to take control of your life.  You may have goals and aspirations that could be easier to achieve after a few counselling sessions that allow you the space to reflect on your experiences.

Whatever your reason for seeking counselling, I am here to offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment for you to explore your past experiences, identify your current needs and make decisions about your future.

If you need help to decide whether counselling is for you, you can get in touch to arrange a free 30 minute consultation.  During the consultation we can discuss your needs and what you hope to gain from counselling.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Level 5 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling
  • Certificate in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills
  • Bsc Psychology

I completed part of my counselling training with a charity, which supports survivors of rape and abuse.  I received additional training, which covered the many issues and long-term effects faced by survivors and have significant experience in working with clients who are coping with issues such as guilt, shame, self-blame and anxiety.

I have also worked as a volunteer counsellor for Mind St Helens.  I provided a telephone counselling service for people whose mental health was affected by COVID-19 for example, the development or exacerbation of anxiety and depression during lock down.

Previous work experience includes working in social care with people with Learning Difficulties, assisting a team of psychologists on a research project and volunteering on a helpline for survivors of rape and abuse.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

NCS

National Counselling Society (NCS)

The National Counselling Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
