About me

Welcome to my page. The world can be a big and overwhelming place at times and can cause feelings of anxiety and low mood. It can be difficult to navigate when you are feeling this way. It’s great that you have chosen to look for support. 

By using person-centred, CBT and solution focused approaches, I can help you explore these big and difficult feelings, without telling you what to do, and without any judgement.

Counselling offers you a safe space where you can explore how you’re feeling. Its a safe space to be with whatever you are feeling in that moment. Counselling is a place to muddle things through and a place to explore and experience your feelings, and their meaning, to lighten the load and move forward with less and less to carry. I will endeavour to walk alongside you as you go on this exploration and support you through decisions to be made and directions to take, and all the emotions you feel along the way.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified, registered counsellor (MBACP). 

  • Diploma and Master's in Counselling Psychology.

I have gained training and experience in working with low mood, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, trauma and other common mental health problems using an integrative approach over the past 8 years. This means I have experience of working with adults and young people (14-18) with a variety of mental health issues in various different settings such as education, mental health charities and the NHS. I have developed ways of working holistically that values you as a person and your life experiences.

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.
