About me

Are you experiencing unwanted, negative feelings, which are stopping you from living your best life? If so, I empower you to get in touch and together we can explore ways in which you can deal with current or past life experiences, which are making you feel this sense of unease. You may just want to talk, or maybe you wish to achieve a goal.. we will discuss what you want out of counselling during our first session. Do you have weight issues and find yourself dieting? Maybe there are issues from your childhood which led you to unhealthy eating habits and you need to explore this further. I offer walking therapy if you are local!

I will offer you a completely confidential space to talk and will listen without any judgement to help you to find peace and move forward from this negative feelings which you are experiencing. I am a person-centred counsellor, which means I will not give advice because you already hold the answers to your issues - you just need some help in finding them!

Life can be difficult and we can experience some troubling events throughout our journey, which can take hold of us and make us feel anxious, guilty, shameful, depressed etc. Sharing and exploring your true thoughts and feelings with somebody completely neutral and non judgemental, can often help you to free yourself of these negative feelings.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have studied at Stamford College and the University Centre, Peterborough for 4 years and have a Level 5 Higher National Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.

I have experience in counselling prisoners at HMP and college students, as well as adults with a range of presenting problems.

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.
