About me and my therapy practice

Taking the first step to seeking support can be daunting but in doing do, you are beginning your journey towards living life the way you want to and achieving your goals. My aim is to make counselling as accessible as possible and provide a safe, understanding and non-judgemental space. To achieve this, I offer a free 30 minute session to explore what counselling is, what you want to achieve from it, how it could work for you and to answer any questions you may have. I work both face to face and online with clients.

I'm a qualified, British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) registered counsellor. I use an integrative approach in my counselling sessions which means that I can draw on a range of counselling theories in my work with you. This includes Person centred, Cognitive Behavioural therapy, Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT), psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis (TA), Existential and Gestalt. Whichever approach we agree to use, my aim is to put my client at the centre of the counselling process providing a confidential and non-judgemental space for you to feel  able to explore the issues you wish to work on.

I am also a qualified coach and coaching can be interwoven into the counselling sessions using an approach called Personal Consultancy. Once you feel that past and present issues have been dealt with, we can move to a more future focussed approach and agree life goals that you wish to achieve and also help maintain progress made in sessions.

I have been fortunate enough to work with a wide range of people from different cultures, ethnicities, sexuality, genders, beliefs and life experiences. I warmly welcome people from a range of backgrounds including people with a physical disability or who identify as neurodiverse.

I am educated to Degree and Masters level and hold a Post Graduate Diploma from the University of East London (UEL) in Integrative Counselling and Coaching which is a BACP accredited qualification.

Practice description

Once you contact me, we will arrange a convenient time to discuss what you wish to achieve from counselling, how I work and to answer any questions you may have. This can be online or by phone call. If you wish to proceed with counselling, I will go through the counselling contract with you which sets out how we will work together including confidentiality, fees and agreed number of sessions.

I offer a flexible approach and we will jointly agree any changes to how we work together. I view counselling as a collaborative activity and I will regularly check in with you on how you feel you are progressing towards your goals.  I offer a counselling model that incorporates coaching but this does not have to part of our sessions if not required.

I can offer standard sessions of 50 minutes or longer duration.

My background is in social care and I have over 20 years experience as a Senior Manager with responsibility for support provision in mental health , neurodiverse, complex needs, physical disability, and Deaf services.

This experience along with my counselling training enables me to work with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, phobias, trauma, stress, relationship problems, substance use and work related issues.

I abide by the BACP Code of Ethics which are based on values, principles and personal moral qualities that underpins how counsellors should work with clients.

I have an up to date and clear Enhanced DBS check.
