About Me

I am a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor and TA Psychotherapy Practitioner and am Accredited and Registered with the BACP (The British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and adhere to their code of ethics and principles, which is in place to ensure therapists are working responsibly and ethically. More information can be found on their website www.bcap.co.uk. I am also a member of UKATA (UK Association for Transactional Analysis) who monitor standards of competence and ethical practice for TA practitioner’s (www.uktransactionalanalysis.co.uk).

I have over 14 years of counselling experience working with people through difficult times in their lives. I offer a safe confidential environment and a warm and non judgemental approach.  I have over 7 years experience as a clinical supervisor and have worked with trainees, newly qualified counsellors through to very experienced practitioners.  Also supporting therapists through their accreditation application. I also offer supervision to other professionals who might be working with vulnerable groups to support them in their role.

My back ground is in child development and working with children and families in stressful and traumatic circumstances.  My counselling training then led me to work with young adults in University settings and then onto working with adults in the NHS in local GP’s surgeries, and now in private practice.

I am committed to ongoing training and development and believe it is vital for me to continue to learn and grow as a Therapist to ensure I am being the best I can be, for my clients.
