About me

Hi, I have experience working with a diverse range of clients both adults and children. My main focus has been working with grief/bereavement and loss and domestic abuse. But I am experienced in working with many issues such as anxiety, low mood, self-confidence, relationship issues, life stage transitions such as menopause and retirement. I work in a person centred way which means I will support you to gain new awareness and move towards the change that you desire, it is your journey not mine but I would love to assist you in finding your way. 

 You may be struggling with various issues in your life, I can help empower you to move towards new pathways and make the changes you desire. Or you may simply need someone to listen to you, offer empathy and a place to share your feelings. I will listen without judgement and will be guided by you, but can bring another perspective  to help explore what is going on for you. 

I offer a genuine, warm and flexible approach to work with you in a way most beneficial and suitable for your own needs. I work from a person-centred foundation but may introduce other therapeutic approaches to help you gain further awareness and achieve the change you are hoping for.

I work on a one-to-one basis from my private counselling room in Stow-on-the-Wold, easily accessible for the North Cotswolds. There is an option to use the beautiful outside space if being closer to nature offers you a more comfortable environment. I also work online if preferred. Please do contact me if you would like to chat about how I may be able to help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • CPCAB Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (BACP accredited course)
  • BA (Hons) Psychology and Management studies

I have trained as a bereavement counsellor at Myton Hospice in Warwick and also worked as a counsellor for Campden Home Nursing. I currently work for a national  charity as a counsellor supporting adults and young people whose lives have been impacted by domestic abuse. I work in a trauma informed way.

The issues I work with include bereavement and loss, life stage transitions, domestic abuse, trauma, anxiety, stress, sadness, depression, low confidence and self-esteem and relationship/family issues. You may not always have a specific reason for coming to counselling and maybe just feel that you are on the wrong path and are seeking some support to explore what direction you may want to take, what barriers may be in your way and how you may move towards the change you are looking for.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) - register number 395794. I am also fully insured and am committed to continued professional development to support my clients in the best way possible.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Additional information

Each session is 50 minutes long and on a weekly basis. Most people feel that between 6-12 sessions are sufficient but this is flexible and is your choice. 

I may be able to offer concessions for counselling students

Further information

I offer a free initial chat, either on the phone or face to face, to give you the opportunity to briefly explain why you are seeking counselling and for you to ask any questions you may have. I fully appreciate that coming to counselling can feel very unfamiliar and daunting so it is important that you feel comfortable and you can connect with your counsellor.
