About me

Feeling lost or that somehow despite your best efforts you don't quite fit in, or you feel unfulfilled, or that something is missing and you find yourself searching for something that you can't quite put your finger on?

Perhaps you find yourself feeling empty, stuck, angry, frustrated, anxious, depressed, hurt, sad or overwhelmed?

Or you find it hard to make and/or keep relationships, and when you do, find yourself misunderstood, judged, or repeating unhelpful patterns of behaviour?

Maybe counselling could help.. maybe I could help?

I am a counsellor/Family-couple therapist/CBT therapist  and experienced clinical supervisor PGCert, BSc (Hons), MBACP.

Benefits of counselling:

You are accepted by me - the counsellor for who you are.

  • I can offer a supportive, non-judgemental and confidential setting in which you can explore any issue.
  • I can help you see issues more clearly and from different perspectives.
  • I can help you express your feelings and come to terms with past experiences.
  • I can help you take control of you life and choices and become more assertive.
  • I can help you improve communication and relationships with yourself and others.
  • I can help you build self-esteem and self-confidence.

How I work:

I embrace working with individual's, couples and families whereby, through creating a warm, caring, safe, non-judgmental, and empathic environment; you find a space where you feel heard and listened to. Ultimately, the aim will be for you the client, to feel empowered to find and implement strategies and resolutions to the challenges you face.

Until recently, I spent 25+ years working in the Business arena, so I have an understanding of the difficulties faced by those also working in this field.

As a child, partner, sister, mother and friend to others, I also have experienced the challenges we face in maintaining our relationships and trying to juggle all the roles we find ourselves with.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).

Further information

I offer both short term and long term therapy.

I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical framework, this includes attending regular supervision to ensure I practice ethically and safely.

Underpinning my practice is an awareness of the importance of a multicultural and equal opportunity approach to my work. I recognise the importance of understanding an individual/s narrative and behaviour in context of their race, religion, gender, class and sexuality.

I embrace, fully acknowledge and value how an individual’s cultural and moral beliefs may inform and lead to goal achievement. How family, community, religion, society and political beliefs may underpin goals and goal setting. I feel it is my role to maintain a sensitive curiosity, whilst being able to hold the tension that these factors may create for the individual/s.
