About me

Do you have Sunday night work blues - every night of the week?

Does your heart sink at the thought of work tomorrow?

Are you finding it hard to see light at the end of the tunnel?

Counselling can help you transform your relationship with work by:

● Providing a space to discuss work challenges openly, free from judgment—empowering you to confidently explore alternative solutions.

● Identifying stressors and their root causes—equipping you with coping strategies and the ability to make informed choices.

● Assisting in setting boundaries and handling others' expectations—allowing you to reclaim more free time for a fulfilling life.

Having worked in law in my first career as a commercial litigation solicitor I understand the demands and pressures of working in a corporate environment. In fact, it was through my own experience of work-related stress that led me to re-train as a counsellor.     

Since qualifying I’ve supported numerous clients to make positive changes, leading to a healthier work-life balance and I’d love to help you to do the same.  

Clients have told me that through therapy they have been able to stop working long hours, sleep better at night and overall feel calmer and less overwhelmed.

So please get in touch to book an introductory call where we can assess whether we’d work well together and I can answer any questions that you may have. I look forward to hearing from you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a MA Counselling from the University of Manchester and am an Accredited Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I have over 10 years of experience gained from working in my own private practice, the NHS and the charitable sector. I am also an affiliate counsellor for a number of Employee Assistance Programmes.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
