I specialise in working one to one with clients facing difficulties in their family relationships.
In my practice, I support you in understanding the link between childhood experience and current relationships, whether with partners, family members, friends, colleagues or children.
Many, but not all, of my clients are parents. Parenting can be difficult and overwhelming. There may be struggles with a new baby, a toddler's tantrums, a challenging teenager who is experimenting in risk-taking behaviour or anxieties about a child's wellbeing at home or school.
I have experience working with women who have experienced still birth, abortion, miscarriage, pregnancy loss and fertility issues. I have completed training offered by 'The Foundation for Infant Loss' for counsellors and professionals working in this area and worked for Cradle charity.
I am a trained and accredited provider of Primary Care level 3 Triple P Positive Parenting Programme so can offer a focus on a child's development and behaviour.
Through non-judgemental, confidential counselling sessions I support you in unpicking these issues relating to partners, children and family. Working in this way improves both emotional wellbeing and relationships with others.
When we meet for the first time, I will spend 50 minutes with you to talk about your primary worries and to explain how we would work together. I offer short term (around 6 weeks) or longer term work, depending on what you feel would benefit you. After our assessment meeting, sessions last for 50 minutes at a regular, agreed time each week.
If you would like to arrange an initial assessment, please do get in touch.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
