About me

I am a qualified, BACP* Accredited Counsellor. I am included on the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists** which was set up by the government in 2013. This is a list of therapists who have met the BACP standards for registration.

My qualifications include a BA (Honours) Degree in Sociology and Psychology and a BTEC Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I have additional basic training in other models including Transactional Analysis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

I have nine years of experience working in a variety of settings. These include :

  • for an NHS Commissioned Provider of brief therapy for depression, anxiety and other issues
  • for a number of Employee Assistance Providers (EAP) focusing on work-related issues
  • education – working with children and families in schools
  • bereavement services
  • sexual abuse/violence services
  • women's centre
  • GP practice - primary care mental health service
  • university student/staff counselling service.
  • independent service for military families

Prior to my training as a counsellor, I worked in mental health services in a number of settings for over ten years.

I offer confidential counselling for individuals and work to the guidelines of the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I access counselling supervision in line with BACP guidelines via an external supervisor; your identity will be kept in confidence.
