About Me

My approach

I’m passionate about giving you the support you need too and I want you to get the best from counselling and coaching.

Although every experience is individual, I understand the emotional roller coaster of trauma and grief, as well as the pain that bereavement and loss brings. I also get how debilitating anxiety and depression can be. Not withstanding the rest of the ups and downs that life brings. I've navigated my fair share of curve balls.

Clients describe me as warm, down-to-earth and empathetic. I'm proud to be the kind of therapist that prioritises the relationship with clients and promotes client autonomy. There is no mystery in my therapy room as I work openly and transparently.

There is no quick-fix or magic solution when it comes to therapy. However, we will work together to move you forward and live a happier life.

Skills and experience

I have over 19 years experience, having started out as a mental health support worker in the community. With an academic background in Psychology, since then I have become a registered therapist, as well as an accredited coach. I am also qualified to train adults and teach mindfulness.

I am registered with Health Code to work with some health insurers.

My knowledge and experience, developed over the years, is all part of the mix when it comes to offering my unique style of integrative therapy. Qualifications include:

✔️ BSc & MSc Psychology

✔️ Level 5 Diploma in Therapeutic (Integrative) Counselling

✔️ Level 5 Diploma in Coaching with Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

✔️ Level 2 in Understanding Autism

✔️ Foundation Certificate in Polyvagal Theory

✔️ Additional Certificate in NLP – Practitioner Level

✔️ Certified Mental Health First Aider

✔️ Level 5 in Leadership & Management

✔️ Qualified Adult Trainer

✔️ Level 3 in Counselling Skills & Theory

✔️ Level 1 Mindfulness Teacher Training (MBSR)

✔️ Cruse Certificate in Bereavement Practitioner Training

I am a Registered Counsellor, with British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) membership.

Being a professional member demonstrates that I am held accountable for safe and ethical practice and that I care about keeping my skills and training up to date in order to be the best for you. It also means I undertake regular supervision from a qualified supervisor and my professional insurance is present and correct.

My story

I love life as it is now but this hasn’t always been the case. I’ve been through some dark times and have lived experience of trauma, anxiety, bereavement, grief and loss.

You may have heard the term “the wounded healer”. It is my own experiences that have led me on this path of helping others.

Healing didn’t happen over night and it was a combination of support from professionals, friends and self-help.

This is the reason that I value the integrative approach to therapy, which brings together all of my skills and experience as a counsellor and coach.
