About me

Hi, if you are reading this and wondering about having some counselling then you've come to the right place!

My work is all about helping people to overcome problems such as anxiety, low self-esteem, eating disorders and relationship problems.

My training as an integrative therapist allows me to draw on a range of theories so I can tailor my work specifically to you. I provide a safe and confidential space for us to explore what's going on in your life to be causing you unease or distress. We might also look at issues from your past. Often the symptoms described above can be manifestations of unresolved emotional trauma. I will also use our therapeutic relationship to help you explore your relationship with yourself and others.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 12 years of counselling experience, gained through private practice and different counselling charities.

I am a UKCP registered psychotherapeutic counsellor and a registered member of the BACP.  I have been working in private practice for the past three years, and before that I worked as a senior counsellor for a rape crisis charity, counselling survivors of sexual violence, whether historical or recent and including child sexual abuse.

I have a BSc (Hons) Integrative Counselling.  I also undertake 50 hours of continual professional development a year as a requisite of the UKCP to keep my skills up to date.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

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

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
