About me

Hello, I am a person-centred counsellor, qualified in 2007 and newly qualified supervisor.  I am also a counselling lecturer that has knowledge of different approaches.

I have worked with issues of drugs and alcohol, depression, family breakdowns, gender, sexuality, childhood sexual abuse and rape. As well as women's health, particularly new mother's mental health and healing. I have also worked in outreach with H.I.V, sexual health, homelessness and mental health within the community. I have a keen interest in neuroscience, the effects of trauma on the brain and the connection between the brain, body and healing.

My ethos as a counsellor is that the individual (s) are central to the session, the lived experience of the person(s) engaging in counselling is valued, held and respected.

I work in a spiritual way, helping you to explore any issues in multiple ways and approaches, placing you at the centre.

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.

Key details

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.
