About me

Starting counselling can feel like a big step, but just like our physical health we need to take care of our mental health. Having some time each week to focus on yourself can benefit everyone, whether you are experiencing huge life events or just want to improve your sense of self. Giving yourself time to work through and process feelings can really help to shift where your feeling stuck.

I offer a space that is honest, genuine and warm for you to explore all areas of your life. I will support you in being self-directing and autonomous in your journey in becoming the person you really want to be. I have specific training and an interest in grief and bereavement, this includes recent losses or it could be many years ago, it would also include experiences of multiple losses and supporting others in their grief such as a care worker or NHS worker.

I also have an interest in the pressures of becoming a parent and believe passionately that parents need to create space for themselves. If you are struggling with becoming a first time parent or finding the balance of life and children hard then please make some time for yourself and make contact.

My other role is a paediatric nurse in the NHS so I have an understanding of the pressures of working within the NHS. Please ask for a reduced price if you are a NHS worker.

Training, qualifications & experience

Foundation Degree in Person-Centred Counselling. A course which is accredited with the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy)

I have experience in the voluntary sector working with carers, the elderly and teenagers all with varying ranges of problems. Currently I work in a hospice with people experiencing a bereavement or loss and I have some extra training in this area.
As well as this I am a qualified paediatric nurse so I have plenty of experience working with young people and families, and understand the pressure and stresses of being a parent.

Im also a member of the BACP and follow their ethical guidelines.

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.
