About me

This is your journey..

Counselling can help you through difficult periods of your life and as life does not come with a guide book, we can often find ourselves overwhelmed, distressed and unable to cope.

My counselling practice is offered to you through a joint venture with my counselling colleague where we aim to provide you as a client, a bespoke service.

Here at A LITTLE ROOM OF THERAPY , our reflective and confidential practice provides an empathetic, understanding and non-judgemental space where both men and women can explore through our therapeutic services, ways to bring meaning, understanding and awareness into their lives.

By gentle exploration we work to support your journey through therapy, to make sense, find meaning and to encourage ways to understand and move you forward through your traumas and difficulties.


Our counselling service provides professionally qualified interventions that deal with many problems including relational issues, anxiety, relationship and family issues. depression, phobias, separation and divorce, abuse, panic disorders, bereavement, redundancy, low self-esteem and child related issues. These are just a few of the areas that we are experienced in and is not an exhaustive list.

I am a fully qualified counsellor with a person-centred psychodynamic background. I work in a pluralistic way bringing a variety of counselling approaches together that are best suited to the individual client.
My experience spans over many years and I have worked within voluntary, Public Health and charity settings.

Along with my Counselling Partner, I am excited to offer EFT & Matrix Imprinting. Often referred to as "Psychological acupressure", the technique works by releasing blockages within the energy system which are the source of emotional intensity and discomfort. These blockages in our energy system, in addition to challenging us emotionally, often lead to limiting beliefs and behaviours and an inability to live life harmoniously. Resulting symptoms are either emotional and/ or physical and include lack of confidence and self esteem, feeling stuck anxious or depressed, or the emergence of compulsive and addictive behaviours. It is also now finally widely accepted that emotional disharmony is a key factor in physical symptoms and dis-ease and for this reason these techniques are being extensively used on physical issues, including chronic illness with often astounding results. As such these techniques are being accepted more and more in medical and psychiatric circles as well as in the range of psychotherapies and healing disciplines. (source: The Energy Therapy Centre).

Member organisations

BACP

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.
