I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist and I work from home in Oakham. I have a passion for working with client’s who suffer with trauma, disability and diversity related issues. I work on developing a therapeutic relationship with you where you can feel safe to explore difficult and painful issues in a confidential setting; issues that you may not have been able to disclose to anyone before. I have flexibility when I see client's, which includes evening and weekend appointments.
My style of working means I can use different approaches to best suit your needs. I normally work with clients on a face to face basis. I now offer a telephone and video conferencing service due to COVID-19 restrictions to keep everyone safe and comply with Government guidlines.
I will find out from you, what has brought you into counselling and what you want to get from it. If this is your first experience of counselling, it can feel very daunting. This is a normal response and a journey we will be on together. All sessions will last for 50 minutes and cost £45 for Individuals and £65 for Couples.
Training, qualifications & experience
I did my training at the Sherwood Institute for Counselling and Psychotherapy in Nottingham city centre.
BSc (Hons) Counselling and Psychotherapy.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership

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).
