About me

Talking to a counsellor can really help you to gain a clearer understanding of your situation, make positive changes and face the future with greater confidence. I offer face to face and telephone counselling in weekly sessions.

When emotional and psychological health is under pressure it can lead to physical illness and affect all our relationships. Counselling can provide much needed support and a way to process our experiences.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), training in Psycho-dynamic counselling with Westminster Pastoral Foundation (WPF) graduating in 2011.  My work is validated by my participation in an Independent Practitioners Network (IPN) Group since 2016.

I offer Integrative Supervision to individual therapist and groups, training at Metanoia Institute, London, 2018.

I work in private practice and previously for community counselling organisations and in educational institutions.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Working originally in the art world, I am interested in how we make sense of our lives by finding patterns and linking different parts of our experience. This can bring a sense of cohesion and integration that had become lost.  Understanding present distress can come about by being more aware of how our upbringing and given assumptions, affect how we view the world. 

I have worked with a wide range of clients with many different presenting issues including depression, anxiety and loss.  More specifically I have worked with many creative people helping them both to use their art form to enhance wellbeing and to bring greater understanding to their creative drive.  I also have an interest in working with new parents as they navigate their babies communications; bringing about greater enjoyment and confidence in their parenting role.
