About me

How can therapy help you?

If you are experiencing difficulty: anxiety, depression or relationship issues, or you may be an over-thinker, experience neurodiversity difficulties (ADHD & autism) or have experienced difficulties in the past which still affect you; such as childhood trauma, adversity or abuse; support from an experienced practitioner may help you. Many people are affected by these experiences. Perhaps it's making you feel alone or different to others, that's certainly not the case and many people experience some emotional difficulty at times in their lives. Counselling and psychology can help you to understand the ways you think, feel and behave, to understand the root causes of your difficulties.

Maybe you're stuck in a cycle of unhelpful habits and want to create better options: once we begin to understand what's going on behind the scenes, we become more able to make real choices and implement sustainable change. You can begin to set realistic goals about the kind of future you want; I can help you to develop your understanding, beyond  short term coping mechanisms. Understanding what’s going on is key. You may be surprised how quickly you can get things  off the ground. 

Counselling & Psychology: a complimentary approach;

Evidenced to develop personal understanding, support autonomy and promote sustainable change, it can help to identify the factors which are contributing to the problem, so we can step out of difficulty, creating new ways to tackle the stressful stuff we have to cope with. It can also help us to recover from past difficulties, which may have left us with trauma responses in the here and now. By exploring these experiences, we're able to consolidate past difficulty and find a new, more stable platform which brings us more of the joys we're looking for. If we can live more fully in the moment and feel able to look forward to a future we want,  our well-being increases.

Bespoke professional support:

I'm well positioned to to assist you in reaching your desired outcomes; my role in the process is to help you better understand the key factors in your particular struggle, without making assumptions about your experiences; and to tailor interventions to suit you as an individual; what works well for one person, may not work so well for another. I'm able to create the best fit and match of strategies from a wide range of approaches. Understanding what's going on is key to creating lasting change and personal resilience. I specialise in identifying underlying causes of distress including burnout, fatigue and overwhelm, and in re-building a sense of self, identity and meaning through life’s changes. 

Professional experience;

I have 16 years experience in practice and I'm registered with BACP and accredited with NCPS. I'm a graduate member of the British Psychological Society and I’m Bupa registered. I have experience as a trauma therapist for a large organisation supporting people from the impact of recent or historical trauma, including sexual abuse and family dysfunction and I've worked in a senior role for a large well known charity for 10 years in a leadership role. I'm a qualified lecturer in my field.
If you think I may be able to help you, and that you may benefit from receiving support from a qualified, experienced practitioner, then do get in touch and arrange an initial session to determine the next best step for you. I’m happy to answer any questions you may have. 

My office is in a beautiful, historical building and is quiet and comfortable. There are several amenities: free parking, cafe, restrooms and gardens.

I offer flexible daytime and evening appointments from my office in Woodfield Park, Doncaster.

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.

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.
