I am able to offer counselling via text, messaging, telephone or video during these unique times at a reduced rate.
I am a qualified counsellor and supervisor working with an Integrative Person-Centred philosophy. This means I work in a way that uses a variety of counselling approaches which I adapt to the needs of the person I am working with.
The work we do is confidential, safe and non-judgemental which helps develop the therapeutic relationship we build. I won’t tell you what to do, but together we will look at ways for you to see your difficulties in a different light allowing you to see new perspectives on your life.
My counselling experience includes working with children and young adults in private practice, school and college settings. I also work with adults on a wide range of issues and trained in family mediation. I have extensive experience working with children and young people in the Looked After system and those on the Autistic Spectrum. I am a trained bereavement counsellor and have lectured on a Foundation Degree course to counsellors in training.
I have undertaken additional training in working online using text, messaging or video sessions.
I hold an enhanced DBS check.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
