About me

Have you ever heard; I know what you're feeling! You're doing things wrong! You're making a fuss of nothing! You should try this! Someone else is worse off......sound familiar? With the growing stresses of modern life it's often difficult to know who you can turn to in a time of self need, without any judgement. That is where I come in. I provide a safe and secure environment for you to discuss your thoughts and feelings whilst reflecting upon where you are and where you want to be. I work integratively, meaning I take a number of different counselling theories and practices and combine them into the best therapy plan for you.

This is why I created GIFT. Giving Individuals Focused Therapy. All of my clients are individuals with there own unique journey to take through counselling and I adapt each session to the client's needs. I have worked in a number of areas, with detailed experience of bereavement, depression, physical and substance abuse and PTSD. I am here to support you.

I uphold the highest code of conduct and will always make sure my clients feel comfortable. To reflect this we will have an initial session together, so that we can meet and you can make sure you are happy. Together we will build a plan through your therapy and discuss how I can support you through this journey. I have a therapy dog (see pictures). Miley can be present in the sessions should you feel it would benefit. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
