About me

Introduction

You don’t have to go through this alone. Are you struggling to cope with a particular situation or event that has happened in your life? Has the pandemic allowed you to re-evaluate your relationships with people and you now want to make some changes? Has the thought of coming out of lockdown caused you some anxiety? I understand how troubling these thoughts and feelings can be. Reaching out for help can be hard, but together we can work on the changes you would like to make.

How counselling can help

Sometimes life can be overwhelming, difficult or confusing. There can be times when you are unable to get to the root of what’s troubling you. Often, being able to talk things through with a trained professional who is non-judgemental and supportive of you can bring a great sense of relief and clarity. Counselling can be helpful, rewarding and empowering.

What I can offer you

I offer a supportive and confidential space for you to talk without having to worry about being judged or criticised. I work in an integrative way and will tailor my approach to your needs and together we can find realistic solutions to your problems or come to a deeper understanding of where your worries may stem from. As an approachable and skilled practitioner, I can help you to feel heard, gain understanding, build confidence and develop skills to help you to manage the difficulties you face.

Through my work with Into The Light, a specialist service for survivors of childhood sexual abuse, I provide one to one counselling for their clients. I also have experience of working with victims of domestic abuse.

What to do next

It can be tough deciding who you want to work with or whether counselling is the right next step for you. Talking things over with a therapist before committing to sessions can be helpful. I offer a free 20 minutes consultation; that way you can make a more informed decision about counselling and whether I am the right person for you. Please feel free to get in touch.

Member organisations

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.
