About me


I am a qualified counsellor, experienced in working with young people and teenagers from 9 years upwards.  I offer face-to-face sessions situated in the centre of Congresbury, North Somerset.

Life can be very challenging for today's young people; navigating growing up alongside balancing friendships, changing family dynamics, loss, identity and the impact of social media.  Any one of these could be an area that is leaving the young person feeling anxious, angry, overwhelmed, frightened or confused.

Through talking and/or the use of creative play, my aim is to create a confidential and empathetic space, in which the young person can feel safe enough to express and explore their thoughts and feelings, whilst building upon their own strengths and healthy coping mechanisms.  The goal is to help the young person feel able to cope with their current concerns and situation, emotionally regulate and positively move forward.

My preference is to work face to face in my rooms; however, I am able to offer home visits or counselling sessions by Telephone/WhatsApp.  

An initial 30 minute session is  free of charge.  This provides an opportunity for the young person to meet me, ask any questions about counselling itself and discuss how we might work together.

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.
