Welcome to my profile on Counselling Directory. I am able to provide a safe private space in which you may address those aspects of your life which are causing anxiety, difficulty, feelings of sadness or distress. The aim of my work is to improve your quality of life, to help you take control of your own wellness, thereby reducing the need for medication.
Following a career in teaching and training, I began my counsellor training in 2006. I have been working in a GP surgery setting since 2014, as well as working in my own practice. I am now a fully qualified counselling Supervisor. I am an experienced Level 4 CPCAB Tutor, teaching adults who are training to become counsellors.
I also run regular Mindfulness Courses. I am a member of The British School of Meditation and have trained with Mary Neilson, who works as a trainer and consultant in schools and businesses. Part of my 6-week course is to encourage Emotional Resilience, thereby reducing the intensity and duration of emotional responses in life, such as anxiety, fear, self-sabotage and other uncomfortable emotional reactions.
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor and member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MABCP). Working in an integrative way means that I can approach my work with you whilst drawing on a number of therapeutic approaches, so that you can receive counselling which is tailored to your needs.
I work with a range of emotional difficulties, and I am able to offer counselling to individuals (adults and A level/ University students) of all ages. I have extensive experience dealing with: -
Abuse Affairs and Betrayals
Alcoholism Anxiety and Panic Attacks
Being a Happier Person Bereavement and Loss

Feeling Sad Getting Past your Breakup / Divorce
General Anxiety Disorder Illness (Acute and Chronic)

I am in clinical supervision to BACP requirements to sustain and monitor my working practice and maintain ethics in my counselling practice.
I am happy to speak with you over the phone for up to 10 minutes so that you can decide if you would like to meet me for an initial session. Please feel free to contact me direct on 07941 094949 to discuss your next steps.
The first session is explorative and collaborative, where we will set goals for you to work on. The goals are reviewed every 6 weeks to encourage a focus for change.
Your session will take place on the same day at the same time each week. I offer weekly sessions which allows for good reflection and a flow in our work.

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.
