About me

As far as your friends and family can tell, you're doing really well. But inside, you're struggling to get a handle on your emotions since you lost that special relationship, your job or someone in your life.

You want to talk freely about how you really feel without worrying about how others may react. It would be great to feel able to get through the day. If you've reached a point where you want to work through a painful experience, adjust to the new normal and start looking toward the future, then you've come to the right place.

I'm easy to talk to and skilled at building a therapeutic relationship that can support you through a difficult time. I'll provide you with a place to breathe and explore how you feel, without judgement - so you can focus on what's next for you.

If you're ready to talk to someone, please get in touch.

Sessions take place via Zoom and I will send step by step details of how to join our sessions. I look forward to meeting you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained to be a counsellor after realising how many people I know, feel unheard and unsupported. Sure they have friends who offer advice and want to cheer them up when they're feeling sad, but no-one who actively listens and leaves space for them to reflect on how they really feel.

Whilst working in supported housing, charity, education and healthcare sectors I've noticed that my genuine interest in trying to understand a person's situation, seeing things from their perspective, has made the biggest difference. Individuals have felt understood and ready to make changes that benefit them.

I studied humanistic and psychodynamic counselling at the Counselling and Psychotherapy Training Academy and completed a professional diploma in integrative counselling. This means I integrate a range of therories and skills to best support you. I’ve also completed training in bereavement and online therapy.

I offer counselling sessions via Zoom and I send full, step by step instructions on how to join the session.

I’m a registered member of the BACP and follow their ethical framework.

I have also worked in South Korea for 5 years as an English teacher to students ranging from 2 - 80 years old. On returning to the UK, I worked in Quality Assurance of healthcare education for 4 years.

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.
