About me

I'm truly passionate about the work I do as a psychotherapist and that No-one should ever have to suffer in silence, however big or small the issue, struggle or situation. Do you feel invisible, not understood, isolated, scared, judged, alone, confused, or just need someone non-judgmental to listen and someone safe to talk to?  Everyone is unique and manages life's experiences, challenges and hardships differently. I provide a non-judgemental safe space, offering my full support, patience and understanding.

Due to my own life experiences, I am able to relate and genuinely empathise with pain and struggles, enabling me to support and empower my clients throughout their journey, growth and healing.

As a Person-Centred Psychotherapist, I provide Face to face, online/ remote, and telephone Counselling, making this service obtainable for those that may find it difficult or challenging to leave their home, or for ease and comfort or simply opening up more opportunities to reach out. I offer a long term, non-judgemental, empathic safe space to share and listen.

I will never define you as your "issue or struggle", but I will see you as a whole, all parts of you.  Collaboratively, I will go on a journey alongside you, offering continuity, warmth, supporting you to reflect, explore, discover ways in which to manage, adapt, change and grow, and in becoming your authentic self. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am qualified HNDip.Couns, Level 5 in Therapeutic Counselling, specialising in Person-Centred therapy, but also working with the Psychodynamic Approach.
I have over 10 years experience as a Mental Health psychological support Practitioner, working with addiction, abuse, trauma, depression, anxiety and behavioural issues, relationship issues, paranoia, anger management and infidelity. 

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.

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).
