Women's Time Counselling
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and Sand Tray Therapist. I take a person-centred approach to our work together which essentially means I tailor what I offer to your unique needs and circumstances. I have extensive training in Trauma Therapy, I am qualified in Online & Phone Counselling and I have a Diploma in Creative CBT. I specialise in working with women and in particular I have a lot of training and 20 years’ experience in supporting survivors of domestic abuse, adult survivors of child abuse and survivors of rape and sexual assault. My focus is on the experiences and aspects of our lives that women encounter, the things we need to deal with, are fearful of, feel anxious about, try to tolerate and want to explore or change. Women's Time Counselling has a trauma focus for women who have encountered overwhelming experiences, however I am experienced at working with a wide range of issues as most of us have lots of experiences, changing circumstances and issues that happen throughout our lives and that are often connected or impact on one another. I have always worked in a non-judgemental and inclusive way and I hope to offer every woman respect, honesty, understanding, emotional support and a safe space. This allows us to explore together alternative ways of looking at issues and find new ways of approaching things. It helps us to gain an understanding of how life impacts on your feelings and thoughts. I will offer you techniques and tools to help you cope when life is difficult and I hope we find ways to inspire and empower you to be who you want to be in the world. Together we can safely explore the past, question the way things are now and aspire to how things can be different for you in the future.

Member organisations *
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.
