About me

When you're anxious or depressed, having relationship problems or issues at work or college, counselling allows a safe space to talk about what's troubling you, helping you gain insight and perspective, and enabling you to live a better life.

I believe counselling is a collaborative process in which client and counsellor work together to enable the client's personal growth leading to positive change. My life experience and time as a counsellor have taught me that my warmth and empathy are qualities that help create an atmosphere where clients feel comfortable talking about their troubles and the distress they are feeling.

A qualified counsellor with over fifteen years experience, I offer brief or longer-term counselling to individuals. I provide a relaxed environment where you can feel at ease talking about your problems, confident you will be listened to with compassion and acceptance, and heard without criticism or judgment.


Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an advanced diploma and a postgraduate diploma in psychodynamic counselling from the University of Cambridge, and am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and a Registrant of UKRC.

I have varied experience working as a counsellor:

*in private practice 
*at a GP practice
*in the outpatient department of a mental health trust
*at a university counselling service
*as an affiliate of employee assistance programmes (EAP)
*and as a BUPA-recognised therapist

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.

BACP

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.
