About me

I offer an opportunity for people from all walks of life aged 16 and up to talk through whatever it is that has brought you to therapy. With my non-directive, honest and non-judgemental approach, I aim to provide a safe and comfortable setting for healing conversation and self-understanding.

I can offer online sessions via Zoom with the option for video call, voice call, or text. I also offer in-person walk and talk sessions – if you choose this option, we will meet at an agreed location and hold the session over a 50-minute walk. I also offer home visits.

Call or email to arrange a free chat to discuss how we can work together.

If at any point we decide not to work together, I will gladly signpost you to any relevant therapists or services that may be better suited to your needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Level 4 qualification in Person-Centred Counselling and continue to build on this approach through Continuing Professional Development programmes (certificates available on request). My approach is Person-Centred Integrative. 

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Interpersonal Communication and a Master’s in Education - both from the USA. I originally trained as a teacher in Virginia, but life brought me to Lancashire where I have worked on the pastoral side of Education for over 7 years, offering guidance and support for a wide range of issues. I qualified as a counsellor in 2019 and have been working with college-age students and adults ever since. 

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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).
