About me

I am a UK Registered counsellor, accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

Psychodynamic Counselling is my main approach to counselling in which I integrate other modalities and techniques to suit my clients. These includes Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Grounding/Mindfulness Techniques. I work with clients holistically; Mind, Body & Soul. I believe that for an overall healthy wellbeing we need to be taking care of all these aspects of the self.

I have a passion to help people heal and to move forward with their lives. Sometimes life gets too much to cope with and we all need some support from time to time, no matter how little or big our obstacles may seem.

I provide a safe and confidential place for you to express yourself and whatever is going on in your life at this moment. Finding words to describe your feelings and circumstances can be hard at times, therefore I also work creatively to help you to find a way through writing, drawings, using objects such as stones, crystals, puppets etc.

I help you to ‘stop’ and ‘reflect’ which increases your self-awareness and enables greater insight and understanding of yourself, your relationships and your circumstances. These realisations can empower you to make healthier and positive changes in your life. Counselling can help to release the blocks that are holding you back from reaching your potential.

I hope to assist you in building a better and more meaningful relationship with yourself, essentially developing your self love, which I believe lays the foundations to true happiness.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked in both statutory and voluntary sector counselling services over the last 15 years across the East and West Midlands. I have set up and developed many counselling and therapeutic services in women specific organisations and children’s and young people’s services including primary and secondary schools, colleges and sixth forms.

I trained in psychodynamic counselling (Post Graduate Diploma) at the University of Birmingham 2001-2004.

I later completed my Masters in 2009. My research was based on women's perceptions and experiences of counselling, with particular focus on women marginalised by society through substance misuse, offending behaviour and street sex work.

I also qualified as a Counselling Supervisor (Post Graduate Certificate -Level 7) at the University of Chester in 2014 - Please see my supervisors profile for more information.
