About me

I love my job as a therapist! With 15 years of experience I offer compassionate therapy in person or online. As a director of MAMs I often work with mothers and parents - www.mamsuk.org

Childhood is that beautiful time in life and often holds the key to many of the issues we face. In sessions we gently unfold your story and gain that understanding, together, of what you need. Taking that first step is the biggest one and for my part I offer a warm welcome and many years of experience.

I have regular supervision and keep up to date with CPD training, I am registered with BACP.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • BA hons (UWE), PGCE in Emotional Education (University of Derby) DipIIP (ASOW), Adlerian Training Certificate (ASOW), Certificate in Adlerian Family Counselling, Registered Foster Carer, Results (cert) Life Coach, HeartMath trainer (UK)
  • EFT and Matrix Reimprinting
  • Ecstatic Awakening Dance Teacher

Working for over four years with mothers and families offering one to one counselling and group therapy, working with loss and trauma, releasing stuck energy.

As a registered foster carer, with experience of mother and baby placements, I offer a compassionate safe space to explore family issues.

Also for couples, we work together and explore the dynamics of relationships, as it is in close relationships that we really discover ourselves. The good, the bad and the ugly.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

As a UK HeartMath ® trainer we can also measure your variable heart rate and work together to improve stress and anxiety with heart coherence.

Further information

I attend regular CPD (continuing professional development) days; these add a variety of skills to my tool kit of support. With EFT (emotional freedom technique) and matrix reimprinting.

Mothers and bonding is my passion and if you feel love is lacking and close connections, having issues in relationships and family dynamics, my gentle way of working is ideal.

Movement matters and as an ecstatic dance teacher, I am very aware of how our body contains all of our stuck energy so if it is appropriate we will move and shake together!
