I am an Integrative Counsellor with experience of working with both private clients and clients within NHS, EAP, Private and Statutory sectors. The Integrative approach I offer embraces a Humanistic Relational perspective, believing in the individual's capacity to grow, change and heal through a positive therapeutic relationship. I aim to provide a safe confidential space in which to explore difficulties, issues and concerns for genuine change to occur.
I hold a special interest in working with relational trauma and attachment, with individuals. This is reflected in my Continuous Professional Development training which includes Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder & am I also qualified in EMDR and CRM.
I have a breadth of experience working with a range of issues that include Adoption, trauma and attachment, historical sexual abuse, domestic violence, anxiety & depression, gender issues, sexuality, addictions, relationships, adoption, bereavement, work-related issues, self-harm, & eating disorders. I am passionate about delivering an effective ethical practice in a non-judgemental, genuine way that respects and honours individual suffering and feel privileged to have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.
What can you expect?
Well you can expect from me understanding, acceptance and honesty, the willingness to work with you at your own pace, to your own agenda. I can provide compassion, a relational approach to working with your emotions with the aim of facilitating healing.

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
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).
