About me

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor, and a member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). With a person-centred approach as my foundation for therapy, I pride myself on being able to offer a flexible, supportive and client-led therapeutic service.

Above all else, I believe the relationship between therapist and client is the most important element in beginning to explore our vulnerabilities. I am therefore passionate about building the foundations of therapy through offering a safe, authentic and non-judgemental space to talk.

I offer 1:1 confidential counselling for all ages (13 +), genders and sexualities and have a varied experience in private practice, mental health services, education and charities. My specialisms include working with clients experiencing low mood, depression, anxiety, grief and loss (including relationship breakdowns), body image and body dysmorphic disorder, self-esteem and self-acceptance, work-related stress and perinatal anxiety and/or depression (including miscarriage, fertility difficulties and paternal depression/anxiety).

I am available to work with clients offering weekday and evening sessions and is willing to work with short and long term clients. I can also offer online or in-person sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist, having studied an MSc in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy at Salford University.

I have also worked in both private practice and charitable sectors as a counsellor and mental health practitioner, including NHS commissioned IAPT services. 

I have experience in both face-to-face and online counselling sessions and is available for both mediums.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
