Member organisations


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.

I am a practising midwife and therefore I can rarely offer regular day/time for appointments. I will be able to arrange appointments at least 4-6 weeks in advance.

Further information

Depression & Anxiety
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counselling and support you can start to understand who you are and address some of the causes.

Trauma & PTSD
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. As a midwife I am specialised in offering trauma therapy following a traumatic pregnancy or birth experience 

As a midwife I have been with families during both joyous & devastating life changing experiences. Being a midwife is about grief as well as joy. I can offer experienced bereavement support to individuals, couples and families who are processing the devastating loss of a baby.
Eating Disorders
As a counsellor i have supported many individuals who are experiencing or recovering from eating disorders. As a midwife I aim to raise awareness of the prevalence and treatment of eating disorders during the pregnancy continuum
Online Services

Counselling can be beneficial to individuals and couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Online sessions are held from the safety of your own home with you at a time that is convenient for you through Zoom.

Perinatal support

As a practising, experienced midwife and an experienced counsellor, I am in a unique position to offer highly specialised support to individuals, couples and groups requiring therapy with a range of perinatal issues including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, OCD, trauma. feeding issues and fertility issues.
