I have been a qualified therapeutic counsellor since 2011 (I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling from the CPCAB.) and I'm an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society. Since qualifying, I've built my own private practice and am honoured to have helped so many people find a way to feel more fulfilled. In October 2020, I gained a qualification in Online Counselling which is recognised by the Association of Counselling and Therapy Online (www.acto-org.uk).
I began training to become a therapist simply because it worked for me. That's how I know it can help you, too.
My practice welcomes everyone regardless of sex, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, faith, ability/disability, cultural heritage and race. If I make a mistake and you feel I am exhibiting a bias, please talk to me. I don't know everything and I'm keen to learn.
I'm not a particularly quiet therapist - I do talk, explain my ideas, observations and so on - but I am and always have been an excellent listener, as you'd expect. And I'm really open to laughter in therapy sessions - the work I do is about ALL life, not just the painful bits.
I also have very short pink/orange/purple hair (it changes week to week) and big glasses!
