About me

Life can be challenging. I offer a caring environment free from judgment for you to explore your feelings. I will work alongside you to develop life-changing habits and help you become the person you wish to be.

I have a special interest in working with relationship difficulties, such as separation, divorce, affairs, control or abuse, stepfamily issues and parenting.

I also work extensively with life stage transitions, such as adolescence, parenthood, menopause, older adults and bereavement. I am passionate about supporting people on their journey for meaning and purpose.

I work with a relational focus and believe that the quality of the relationships in our lives significantly affects our wellbeing, be it our relationship with ourselves, our partner, our family, or our wider connections.

I have experience working within the educational sector and helping teenagers and young adults figure out who they are, where they belong, overcome anxiety and to live confidently and happily.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified and fully insured professional therapist. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I hold a Certificate in Integrative Counselling (Level 3) and an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling (Level 4).

I regularly attend workshops and seminars, as continual professional development is at the heart of my practice.

Besides my private practice, I provide therapeutic support for local charities working with clients  experiencing a variety of psychological and emotional issues. I also provide bereavement support for a national charitable organisation.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Fees

Additional information

My fees are £50 per session.

I believe that therapy should be accessible for everyone and therefore I offer a limited amount of spaces at a reduced rate for students and those on low income or benefits.
 
An initial 15-minute telephone or zoom consultation is free. This will give you the opportunity to ask any questions and to help us decide if we would like to work together.
