EJS Counselling & Psychotherapy


I am a Registered Member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS) . I am bound by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice and subject to its Codes of Practice. I am on the DBS register and hold Certificate from LINK Barnardo's.

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. This is how I know how difficult it can be to take that first step and how hard it can be to continue and shape my practice around what you as individuals need. I also undertake regular supervision every month and hold professional indemnity insurance.

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, and I am also registered and trained through LINK to support clients with difficulties linked to adoption or fostering.  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.

I have learned that by bringing people into contact with nature they can begin heal from personal issues, trauma and mental illness.
I have also learned that when people develop a relationship with the natural world they tend to respect and care for it in new and meaningful ways.
