About me

At the heart of my work is the belief that we all have within us the resources and wisdom we need to overcome difficulties. Counselling provides a private place to explore issues and relationships in a safe, accepting space. For many of us issues from the past, sometimes as far back as childhood, can affect our lives and relationships, and counselling is a way of re-visiting the past in a supportive way, so that new perspectives can arise. At other times we may have a sense of wanting to find meaning and potential in life, and counselling can help release creativity and find a new way forward.

I work in an integrative way, combining person-centred, psychodynamic and transpersonal approaches.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have completed counselling training to the level of Advanced Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (2004), and I undertake continuing professional development, including training in couples counselling, and embodied relational psychotherapy.


I am a registered member of BACP (the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and subject to its Professional Conduct Procedure.

Member organisations

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.
