About me

Often, having busy lives means that people do not have the time to listen to each other. Just having a warm, caring person to talk with can make all the difference. My approach is simplistic and my aim is for you to feel comfortable at all times.

I am an integrative therapist which means I use various models according to the individual needs of each client. I work in a person centred way which incorporates the core values of acceptance, empathy and congruence and I hope to provide a safe place in which the client can process and explore their thoughts and feelings.

I work with both adults and young people and deal with the many issues that people experience throughout their lives. These include bereavement, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, addictions and family breakdown.

As a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy I work in an ethical way ensuring confidentiality at all times.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Diploma in therapeutic counselling and a post qualifying Diploma in counselling children and young people. My work involves helping people through the many difficulties they may experience during their lives and as a requirement of the BACP, my professional development is on going. This involves participating in training workshops and seminars and keeping updated on new and innovative concepts.

I have fifteen years experience of working with both young people and adults and have previously been a school counsellor in a secondary level Academy.

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.
