About me

I am an integrative therapist, who has also trained to work with children. I have experience helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, childhood trauma, self esteem and confidence.  Additional areas of focus include LGBT, grief, adoption and foster care, attachment issues, domestic violence, family of origin issues and multicultural concerns.  I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity and compassion.  I will tailor our dialogue to meet your unique and specific needs.  It takes courage to seek out a more happier and fulfilling life and I am here to support and help you in that journey.  I am also qualified to work with children using play and art therapy.  

My therapy room is set in the wonderful Cheshire countryside.  But i am happy to work via zoom or telephone.  Please email me leaving your telephone number and I will call you back at an agreed time or phone me for an initial discussion.

Training, qualifications & experience

I started my counselling journey as a foster carer.  As a foster carer I was interested in how the trauma my foster children had experienced, effected their behaviour - often negatively. They would avoid any meaningful attachment. They would push your buttons in an attempt to break down the placement because they felt they did not deserve a loving home. It didn't make sense. So I did an Open University Degree, it was called an Open Degree because I could quite literally look at any aspect that interested me. What was normal behaviour in a child. How did adversity affect behaviour, how was the brain moulded by love, fear etc. I achieved a BSc Degree. Following this, I studied for a counselling qualification. I have a CPCAB Level 4 Diploma In Therapeutic Counselling. I am also a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy ie. MBACP 396398

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.
