About me

I am a caring, compassionate person whose motivation and zeal is energised by helping others reach their potential and ultimately fulfil their destiny. I empathetically seek to support others experiencing life’s challenges and my passion is for them to become fully operative and wholly restored. In order to equip myself to carry out this mission, I have worked voluntarily with charities and in employment for over 20 years. I pursued a career in counselling and also attained a BA (Hons) in Counselling. I am an integrative counsellor and well trained in areas such as CBT, PCT, Pyschodynamic, Gestalt, Narrative and various other schools of therapy.

I work with individuals, couples and young adults. Areas of counselling include working with:

  • stress
  • anxiety
  • bereavement
  • relationship issues
  • self esteem/confidence issues
  • depression
  • abuse
  • and self-harming amongst other life challenges.

I have continued with Supervision and CPD’s to keep abreast of therapeutic and educational practices/policy or changes.

My BSc (Open) degree and previous business and employment experience comprised of diverse studies, vocations, management of staff and included financial management.  I have collectively pioneered and run a successful accredited IT Centre and worked for the Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow Trust, Halifax, East Berkshire and Richmond College.  My experience has been invaluable for life-coaching individuals and mentoring young adults.

Training, qualifications & experience

BSc (Open) degree and BA (Hons) in Counselling.  Counselling includes training in the popular and major schools of therapy including PCT, CBT, Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Sand tray, Play therapy, Narrative, T.A.

CPD training has included courses for anxiety, self-esteem/confidence building, disassociation and currently pursuing a post graduate certificate in working with children and families.

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.
