About me

I can offer you help and support to work through anxiety, depression, stress, loss and grief.  Working with adults from the ages of 18 upwards, I often see and am experienced in those navigating chronic illness, whether that is their own or a person close to them.  

Midlife and menopause can also be a difficult time. Coping and dealing with anxieties surrounding this can often make people feel scared, anxious and frustrated.  I can help you explore this new era of your life and we can work together to improve the emotions and feelings. 

To help you explore your difficulties, I offer a safe space to unpack.  Working within a person centred approach to counselling, where I believe that all people have the ability to be and grow into the person they truly want to be.  Working through your concerns is an important step towards this.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience of working within the NHS and a local council children's centre (with parents) offering both short term and long term counselling for a variety of problems such as bereavement, chronic and long term illness, stress, depression and anxiety.

I have personal experience with chronic illness so feel that I can offer the support and empathic understanding to work with this issue and all it brings to life.

I also work with some local businesses and a construction industry charity, offering short term therapy. 

Being a qualified, registered member of the BACP, I work within their ethical framework and guideline's to ensure I work in the best and safest way for my clients.

I have also had training and gained a qualification in online and telephone counselling which means I am able to offer therapy to those further afield and those who are unable to travel or access a therapy room.  

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.
