Training, qualifications & experience
Having trained at the Psychosynthesis and Education Trust in London, I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling accredited by the BACP and University of East London. I'm a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy MBACP.
I am an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Life Coach skilled in CBT delivery and Life Coaching practice.
In addition to private practice I have worked as a short term Counsellor for Employee and Assistance Programmes including RedArc Nursing, Sugarman Health and Well Being, Dover Counselling Centre and Empathy Counselling Service.
With over 26 years combined experience in counselling and empowerment roles, I also worked for the charities Macmillan Cancer Support and Mencap.
In addition to counselling, I've held strategic roles for public and private sector organisations including Social Services, building and construction, the arts and entertainment. In these roles I gained understanding of organisational psychology, dynamics and issues common to the modern work place, including stress and the need for well being at a personal and organisational level.
At Strathclyde University I gained a Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree in Politics and Sociology.
The Psychosynthesis and Education Trust is a member of the European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP) and founding member of the European Federation of Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy (EFPP).
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.

My work has given me a precious insight into the light and shade of life and incredible strength of the human spirit when facing pain and crisis. Equally, peoples passion, desire and ability to reach their aspirations and dreams.
My values as a counsellor focus on supporting people to work with the challenges and choices they need and want to, whilst providing the skills and guidance to enable them to do so.
I bring a warmth and professionalism to counselling.
