About me

I have experience of working with a wide range of clients through my private practice. I previously worked as a counsellor for Phoenix Health and Wellbeing in Leeds.


I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I have a CPCAB (Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body) Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.

I teach CPCAB Level 2 Counselling Skills and Level 3 Counselling Studies courses for York City Council.

I am also employed as a Student Wellbeing Officer at the University of York supporting students at all stages of their academic studies from first year undergraduate to PhD level work. 

​I am fully insured, hold an enhanced DBS certificate and am registered with the Information Commissioner's Office.

I undertake regular Continuing Professional Development in line with BACP registration. 

Prior to working as a counsellor, I worked for 15 years as a manager in public and academic library and information services. I have a MA and BA from the University of Sheffield.
