About me

What do you want to change? How do you want things to be different? Together we can work towards helping you through your difficulties and finding a new way to cope with, and think about life.

In the safe, comfortable and confidential environment I offer, you can be free to explore your problems and establish a better way forward.

I work in an integrative way, which means that I use theory and techniques from different schools of counselling to form a unique way of working with each client. My way of working tries to ensure that the therapy fits the client, not the other way round.

I believe that central to all counselling is the relationship between the client and therapist, and this is the basis of our work together.

I also believe that our past can affect our present, so along with looking at issues in the here and now I also work with matters from childhood.

I am a member of the BACP and work to the BACP Ethical Framework and am committed to providing an ethical counselling practice.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
