About me

Have you had enough of struggling through life? Not wanting to burden loved ones with your problems? If so then maybe its time to talk to someone who can help.

All of us, at times, can find life a bit tough. Whether its events that we are struggling with in the here and now or past issues that are still holding us back.

Historically, society has led us to believe that a 'stiff upper lip' approach is the best way to deal with any such problems. Luckily attitudes are changing and whilst it is widely reported that mental health issues are on the rise, also recognised is the importance of dealing with it, not ignoring it.

Having the space to talk through your problems confidentially with an understanding, non-judgemental and empathic professional can prove invaluable.

Whether you are struggling with - anxiety, depression, loss, grief, anger, abuse, low self esteem, relationship or family problems, OCD, PTSD, work issues or find that you are just feeling "stuck" in life and need help to decide which road to take. Having a safe haven where you can explore the past, present and the future can make all the difference to your quality of life.

Training, qualifications & experience

Integrative counselling is a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies.
With this approach I am able to tailor make the sessions to facilitate the client with a bespoke blend of person centred, cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic therapies.

I have 20 years experience of working with children and have previously counselled within a mainstream primary school. Alongside this I have volunteered for a charity organisation where I was counselling students and adults.

I studied for my degree at the university of Leicester and I am a registered member of the BACP.

I have a certificate in CBT awarded by the APT (Association of Psychological Therapies).

I am qualified in couples/relationship counselling.

I also offer phone and online skype/facetimes counselling sessions.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
