About me

I am a senior accredited counsellor with the British Association for Counselling offering counselling to adults and young people on a wide range of issues including bereavement, relationships, abuse, bullying, self esteem and stress& anxiety. I have over 30 years of experience as a qualified counsellor and have worked in various setting including: the NHS, secondary, further and higher education and the charitable sector. In addition to my private practice I also work part-time at the University of Cambridge as a student counsellor and am a qualified supervisor.

I am able to work short and long term with clients depending on their needs. I use an integrative psychodynamic and humanistic counselling approach and aim to create a  warm, empathic and non-judgemental space for clients to talk about any issues they are facing. These can be related to current difficulties or those that have happened in the past.

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.

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.

Accredited register membership

Other areas of counselling I deal with

In addition to be a counsellor I am also a qualified supervisor. I have experience of supervising both trainee and qualified/experienced therapists in a variety of settings either 1:1 or in small groups. I also have experience of facilitating long-term Reflective Practice groups for nurses and would be keen to extend my supervisory practice in this area.
