I am a qualified Person-Centred counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), which is the governing body for counselling and psychotherapy in the UK. As a Member of BACP, I am bound by its Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions, and subject to the BACP Professional Conduct Procedure. I also adhere to its recommendations for regular supervision and continuous professional development.
I have previously worked for a charity, within a large business and as a teacher. I have had my own struggles and challenges along the way. All of these roles, have allowed me to support adults and children with various additional needs. I am passionate about inclusion and enabling a voice for all. For the past 7 years, I have also worked within a Critical Incident Team of a large local authority, which provides emotional support to adults and children following a critical incident and which can affect individuals and communities in different ways. I continue to volunteer at a local counselling centre and have previously volunteered in several other positions including Samaritans.
I’m aware how difficult it can be to both feel you need help and even more so to ask for it. I strive to offer the space and time for you to feel heard and to allow your feelings and struggles to be truly acknowledged without judgement. Life can be really tough at times but by working alongside you, I offer support in allowing you to explore the difficulties that you are experiencing in order to move forward.
