About me

Do you ever have the feeling that you are incomplete, that some aspect of you is missing or has become misdirected? Has tragedy changed the meaning of your life, and now you’re looking for a way to navigate through this new world? Do you have a desire to reach some form of normality again?

Counselling is a process that can be profoundly transformative, helping to build a more meaningful, creative and fulfilling life.

I am a qualified Integrative counsellor and coach. Each one of us is unique, with diverse requirements from counselling, so I blend elements from different approaches to suit the personal needs of my clients. Some find resolution within a limited number of sessions, while others benefit from a longer-term approach.

How can we work together? Counselling is a journey based upon relationship, so it is vital that you find a counsellor with whom you are compatible. That’s why I offer a free thirty minute foundation session where you can meet me and together we can discuss the counselling approach I offer.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Higher Diplomas in Integrative Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and training in Existential counselling. I have experience in addiction counselling, working with stress, low self-esteem as well as being an accredited Bereavement counsellor and supervisor. In addition, I have a Higher Diploma in Coaching and I am experienced in dealing with issues of career and life change.

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.
