About me

Do you currently feel stuck or confused, anxious or fearful, emotionally numb, frustrated or restrained, under achieving, without clear identity, low in self-confidence or esteem, lacking purpose, grief or regret, depressed or hopeless, anger, lost or trapped in the past?                   

Do you want to feel empowered & full of clarity, calm & peaceful, emotionally aware & connected, unfettered and free, high achieving, full of self-worth & belief, a strong sense of purpose & identity, healed, joyful & hopeful, composed, focused on the present & future, less self-judgement? The Clarity is the place for you.

I am a deeply committed & motivated professional who believes strongly in the potential in us all to find happiness, peace, success and self-growth. My psychotherapy & coaching create the space & opportunity to transform your life & enable you to feel full of clarity, hope & achieve success.

Imagine a unique and deep relationship where the whole focus is on you, on uncovering what your challenges and demons are, what you want in your life and how to achieve it. This is what psychotherapy and coaching with me can deliver. If this sounds like the right path for you, please contact me on the below details to have an exploratory chat.

Training, qualifications & experience

Psychotherapy qualifications, accreditation and experience

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have a master’s degree at Regents University in Psychotherapy and Counselling. I have worked in the mental health charity sector for five years, supporting and then steering the therapeutic process for clients. My therapeutic experience has involved working with a diversity of clients with the following challenges: grief, anxiety, OCD, depression, chronic pain, relational breakdown, bereavement, sexual identity concerns, shame and guilt issues, human torture, sexual and child abuse, trauma and PTSD.

Transformational coaching qualifications, accreditation and experience

I have worked within the Banking sector as a senior HR professional for sixteen years, providing coaching, negotiation and conciliation support throughout that time. I am also an accredited Transformational Coach with Animas, which is recognised by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). My coaching experience has involved working with a diversity of clients with the following challenges: business set-up and planning, value-set re-evaluation, low self-esteem and anxiety, life crossroad challenges and self-confidence issues.

Corporate Work experience

I have worked in a fast paced and high stress environment in the City for 16 years in numerous HR Leadership roles. Within this environment I have worked with top leadership teams, looking after customer bases of up to 5000 employees at a time. My role has involved ensuring that the people strategy is a key enabler to the business plan across the following areas: employee wellbeing, engagement, reward, development, talent, leadership and relations. This involves cultivating an organizational culture and infrastructure that promotes and nurtures individuals and teams to thrive in respect of business performance, personal development and mental health and engagement. My experience is providing individual and/or team executive, performance coaching and leadership coaching.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
