Hello, I love helping people to help themselves through difficult times. Relationships, abuse, shame, low self-worth and anxiety.
I work online using Zoom or telephone.
I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic counsellor (2007) and Supervisor with an integrative approach and gained my accreditation with the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) in 2012.
In addition, I am a clinical hypnotherapist, NLP practitioner and Coach.
My principles & ethics are based on the guidelines & code of conduct offered in line with the BACP.
I am happy to offer a 30 minute online consultation so we can discuss what you may want from counselling in a safe and private setting. All I would ask is that you have a confidential space while working online together.
I offer appointments Mon - Thursday in the evenings from 2pm - 8:30pm.
I am a BACP Accredited counsellor and have UKRCP registration. (The 'BACP' British Association Counsellors/Psychotherapists are the main governing body in the UK).
As an integrative counsellor I use several distinct models of counselling and psychotherapy to best meet your needs.

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.
Accredited register membership
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.

When I work
Monday - Friday from 1pm - 8:30pm
For me, the most important part of the therapy process is the ability to gain and maintain a professional relationship based on trust, safety & without judgments. I believe that this in turn allows for growth and development with any area of concern to you; I don't have all the answer and will not give you a solution - we work together.
All I would ask is that you give some time and thought in relation to; 'what you would like to get out of therapy' so we may work together so you achieve this; working solely from what you bring to our sessions each week.
Over the last thirteen years I have provided counselling services for a local charity that offer services to anyone affected by Rape and Sexual violence. In addition, previously I have offered counselling services to a Bereavement counselling service and a Mental Health counselling service.
I am also qualified to, and have experience of, working with children. I facilitate workshops for counsellors in relation to working therapeutically with children through play and I have supported adults and children through the criminal justice system in relation to court proceeding due to many forms of sexual and domestic abuse/violence.
I started my training as a counsellor in 2006 and I graduated at Staffordshire University in 2009 with a Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I qualified as a clinical supervisor in December 2014 with the Manchester Institute of Psychotherapy.
As an integrative psychotherapist I use several distinct models of counselling and psychotherapy to best meet your needs.
