About me

I am an integrative humanistic counsellor, which means I am person-centred and use my training and experience in different approaches to suit my client's needs. As an Integrative therapist, my focus is centred on you as the client and working in a way that is most supportive to you and your issues. I work face to face both long or short term. During our counselling together the sessions will be reviewed to make sure it is meeting your needs.

Taking that courageous step and talking to a counsellor can be the support that you need to know that you are not alone. That there is someone you can talk to in a safe environment without judgment. A safe place where you can find the help you need to work through that life time issue you have been struggling with or speaking to someone about that one issue that you can't seem to move forward from. Finding that space to reflect, speak and be heard. 

I am a member of BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists).  I also regularly attend supervision and participate in ongoing CPD’s (Continuing Professional Development) to make sure my work is current and ethical.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
