About me

If you have been considering therapy to see you through a period of difficulty, I offer a confidential space in which you can safely express your thoughts and feelings without fear of criticism or judgement.

Counselling could help you if you are currently experiencing any kind of dissatisfaction or confusion in any area of your life. It also enables you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your present situation and empowers you to make effective decisions and choices.

Counselling is an activity in which you must choose to engage; no one should force or pressurise you into attending. For more information please visit my website.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am bound by their Ethical Framework for The Counselling Professions, BACP registered and accredited.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the Metanoia Institute in Ealing, which is recognised internationally as a place of teaching and learning excellence. I specialised in Counselling using The Person Centred Approach and gained a Diploma and BA (Hons) degree.

Both these qualifications have enabled me to work long and short term with adults and young people in private practice, agency environments and secondary schools for the past fifteen years.

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.

Supervision

In person

I believe supervision is an important relational process; an essential element in the protection of both counsellor and client, as well as for the professional development of the practitioner.
