Counsellor/ Psychotherapist DIP MBACP (Accred ) ASBP COSRT, EMDR UK

About me

Thank you for visiting my page. I am an Integrative counsellor which is a term used to describe either an integration of two or more therapies. In general, Integrative counselling is not tied to any single therapy, since I am able to take the view that your story is unique to you and not one approach is not suitable for everyone.  I will meet  you in my practice, providing a safe, comfortable and confidential environment. The initial session will give you a sense if therapy is the right support for you.  It is an opportunity to explore personal experiences and discuss what you might like to achieve in therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been practising for 18 years and I am BACP registered and accredited therapist.  Although I have specialisms working with  Autistic Spectrum disorder, psychosexual and bereavement, I have worked with a range of psychological challenges.

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.

When I work

I can work flexibly Monday-Sunday so I am able to offer a variety of appointment times.

Further information

  • I will make an appointment to meet with you for an initial assessment.  The charge for the initial assessment is the same as the session cost. This will provide you with an opportunity to talk about what you would like to resolve or change and decide if therapy is the best support for you.  A typical assessment and subsequent sessions are for 50 minutes.  We will also discuss and decide on a review mid-therapy.  This will take place to modify any treatment activities and approaches as required in order to comply with changes in your status and needs.
