I am a humanistic (Gestalt) counsellor providing one-to-one counselling.
I am a qualified and experienced therapist offering confidential and professional service to individual and couples. I believe an overall aim of counselling is to provide people with space to talk and reflect on issues in their life that they feel important, and also ones that are causing distress. I see my role as a therapist to build trusting and productive working relationship with people while providing a safe environment where they can achieve further awareness, alongside exploring ways in which they can cope and manage better. I work with the belief that you know how to support yourself and can solve your own problems, but sometimes you may get stuck in an unhelpful pattern and need someone else to help you to get out of it. I offer long term and short term therapy and personal development.
I specialise in couple-counselling and family counselling.
I work with clear ethical boundaries and I am a Registered member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy ( BACP).
My aim is to ensure that counselling is undertaken with the context of respect and acceptance.

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.

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).
