EJS Counselling & Psychotherapy


Experience & Qualifications

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS) .  I am bound by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice and subject to their Codes of Practice.

I am also an Approved LINK Adoption Counsellor with Barnardo's Adoption Agency whom are registered to provide adoption placement and support services.

Part of being a qualified and professional counsellor means I have had counselling as part of my training and will be in and out of therapy for the rest of my career when I feel it necessary for my own self care. 

I also undertake regular supervision every month and hold professional indemnity insurance and I am DBS Checked.

Prior to being a counsellor and psychotherapist I worked for many years in retail & hospitality before switching career following a life changing event and training to work with mental health & disability in 2003. I began training as a counsellor in 2006. I have been running my counselling & psychotherapy practice full time since 2010, working in a variety of settings as a consultant and therapist (Mental Health Services, Schools, Charities) and have specialist knowledge around working with survivors of sexual and domestic abuse. 

In recent years I have integrated my training in Regenerative Nature Based Therapy and I now live and work on a piece of land set up to share with clients and participants.

"It is the need of every single one of us, child or grown up to feel wanted, to feel we belong and that we matter in the world"
