I specialise in all aspects of relationship and couple counselling, and have postgraduate qualifications in psychology, relationship therapy and couple counselling, as well as individual therapy. Issues can include understanding patterns of relating, separation and divorce issues, sexuality, domestic violence, past sexual abuse, mental health issues and their impact on families, and cultural diversity. I see couples or individuals over the age of 18.
Aswell as being an accredited member of the BACP, I am also a qualified supervisor, and was the clinical supervisor of the counselling team at Relate Cambridge for four years. I now focus on my private counselling practice, but would be happy to hear from counsellors wishing to obtain supervision of their work.

I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, and a registered graduate member of the British Psychological Society. I am bound by their Ethical Frameworks, and subject to their professional conduct procedures.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
