About me

Life is full off ups and downs. Often the downs can last longer than the ups and feel overwhelming and lonely. I can offer a safe, confidential, space to help you explore your thoughts and feelings. 

Do you feel isolated? Or perhaps you feel anxious or out of control? Maybe you simply need to be heard, valued and supported? 

I can be the someone to stand by your side.

Having someone who will listen with empathy and be completely non-judgemental can be very healing during the darker moments. I have an interest in people and am a good listener. You can feel sure of coming away from my sessions feeling like you have been heard and valued. Overtime, you should experience a shift from where you began.

I have worked with a diverse range of adults as well as young people. Having spent many years as a primary school teacher and private tutor, I have been able to develop the ability to build quick rapport and trusting relationships with children and young people. My current position as a school counsellor in an independent secondary school has enabled me to extend my counselling experience to working with young people on a range of issues including; exam stress, friendship issues, relationships, self-harm, mild eating disorders, family issues, anxiety, low mood, low self-esteem and issues around LGBTQIA.

I also have extensive experience of counselling adults through bereavement, abuse, anxiety, family issues, trauma, infertility, self-esteem, illness, low mood and depression.

I believe in ‘stronger together.’ Together we can get through many things.

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.
