About me

As a Senior Accredited Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor, I have worked with hundreds of individuals and groups as a therapist since 2010, supporting a vast array of life circumstances and emotions that prevent people from leading their lives in the happiest and fullest way possible.

There are four key areas that therapy sessions can support you with, these are:

  • Difficult emotions - whether you’re struggling with low self-esteem, feeling angry, or confused about things that have happened or are happening in your life.
  • Mental or physical health challenges - including depression, anxiety or upsetting health conditions/diagnoses.
  • Upsetting life events - for example, bereavement, relationship breakdown or work-related stresses.
  • Building self-awareness/identity - this can include exploring challenges around gender or sexual identity, along with other changes in life that lead you to question who you are or what you want from life.

Training, qualifications & experience

As a Fellow of the Royal Society for Public Health, I hold a range of professional accreditations including as a Senior Accredited Psychotherapist with the National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS) and Accreditation with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

My academic background has led me to study a British Psychological Society Accredited Masters Degree in Mental Health and Wellbeing, alongside holding a BA (Hons) Degree in Counselling & Psychotherapy. As part of my ongoing professional development, I regularly enhance my clinical skills through the study of additional short courses and CPD workshops. Some of these have included:

  • Post-Qualifying Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Post-Qualifying Certificate in Counselling Children & Young People
  • Cruse National Certificate in Bereavement Care
  • Victim Support National Certificate in Supporting Victims of Crime
  • Relate Approved Certificate in Counselling Online
  • Barnardo’s Accredited Adoption Counselling Practitioner Certificate

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
